|Title||HW/SW Inventory: Do not save inventory tree if Checkmk service calculates status data inventory|
|Checkmk Edition||Checkmk Raw Edition (CRE)|
|Compatibility||Compatible - no manual interaction needed|
The Checkmk HW/SW Inventory service builds up the inventory tree and if Do status data inventory is configured in the ruleset Do hardware/software inventory the Checkmk service builds up the status data tree. Latter one also saved the inventory tree as the Checkmk HW/SW Inventory service does. This may result in flapping inventory history entries.
Now the inventory tree is only saved by the Checkmk HW/SW Inventory service and the status data tree is only saved by the Checkmk service if Do status data inventory is configured.
Both the commandline cmk -vii HOST and the Checkmk HW/SW Inventory service also run inventory hooks.
