The add-on is updated to collect hierarchy inventory data to support the Splunk Supporting Add-on for VMware. Also, any occurrences of biased terms such as blacklist, whitelist, master, and slave have been replaced with appropriate unbiased terms. The occurrences of biased terms that refer to Splunk core terminology have been kept as is.
