What is recursive discovery?

When Asset Manager starts a scan, it starts crawling the network and actively probes all devices, including all endpoints and all network devices. When Asset Manager encounters a network device that can route traffic, it uses the route tables in the network device as the starting point for a new phase of active discovery (i.e.,. "Recursive Discovery").  In this way, Asset Manager has the ability to discover networks and devices that are beyond the targeted space initially used to seed the scan; Asset Manager repeats this process recursively until everything that is alive on the network is discovered.
