They are all optional for discovery, you just need at least one of them.

However, only SNMP will be able to provide a reliable identification, 
and only if your *exact* combination of hardware/firmware is already 
present in the model database, otherwise, you'll just get an unknown 
device to import into your inventory, and inventory will be impossible 
due to the lack of a suitable SNMP description model.
