If you want immediate rediscovery then you must put the deleted device in the seed file as a positive discovery seed.
Just add it's name if you are using DNS or primary IP address to the file and one of the first things netmon will do is go out and try to find the device.
Otherwise you wait for it's IP address to show up in some other node's ARP cache.   netmon won't know it is there unless someone tells him about it.  If you want him to find ti immediately, then you have to be the someone.

I have a continuous problem with NV713. When I have to re-discover a site or
a device I delete this and stop and restart netmon daemon. I thought this is
restarts discovery and the deleted site or device will be re-discovered.
Unfortunately, it does not happen every time. Sometimes the device re-appear
in a few days, sometimes it never showed again. What can be the reason of
this? How can I avoid?

Thank you
