You can create a custom runtime script to discover class instances that you want to monitor. A script is defined as part of a discovery in a Management Pack. The discovery targets an existing class (for example, a Windows computer, Windows server, or Windows client) and runs for every instance of the class that exists in a Management Group. To discover new class instances, the script collects data and returns it to a Management Server for processing. The Management Server then adds the data to the Operations Manager database.
