About modeler plugins
Resource Manager uses plug-in maps to map real world information into the standard model. Input to the plug-ins can come from a number of different sources (SNMP, SSH, WinRM, etc). Selection of plug-ins to run against a device is done by matching the plug-in name against the bound modeler plugins.
