Itential Prospector is a compliance engine that "sits on top" of Cisco® NSO. It works in conjunction with the Itential Golden Config application.
This guide introduces Prospector while the related articles in this guide take you through installation and configuration.
As a compliance engine, Itential Prospector works along side the Itential Golden Config application to ensure the configuration expected by Golden Config matches what Cisco NSO® knows to be on the machine. Whereas Golden Config provides a front-end user interface, Prospector is the back-end server that handles the detailed aspects of ensuring that compliance is accurate.
