Trying to understand the purpose of the SNOW Inventory Gateway and when to use it/install it and when its not needed. We have multiple installed but the network and server guys are asking why I need them. I don't have a good answer for that.


I have installed SNOW inventory gateways in EMEA and APAC regions and well as in domains of recent acquisitions. I have enabled the SNMP and AD discovery on these servers, but is that the only reason for them?
