[omd-users] New User Question - Configuring Devices to Monitor

I have a medium sized research data center in desperate need on a 
monitoring solution.  OMD looks like a good match, but I'd like to 
shorten my learning curve if possible.  At this point I'm most 
interested in how to rapidly add all the devices that I need to 
monitor.  Specifics:  A lot of SNMP devices - networked PDUs, UPSs, and 
the Siemens climate controls that we've managed to get exported via 
SNMP.  Also a large number of Linux servers, including the BMC/IPMI 

I'm hoping that there's some way to walk the network and discover 
everything, but none of the documentation that I've found seems to focus 
on this part of the process.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
