[Fusioninventory-user] Who (fusioninventory or GLPI) decides to which host an inventory entry belongs (and how)?

when inventorizing computers with `fusioninventory-inventory | 
fusioninventory-injector --stdin <URL>` who decides, if an entry is a 
new computer or an update for an old one?  GLPI or the fusioninventory 
plugin?  And how?  I noticed, that when I change the hostname and 
re-inventorize, then a new entry is created in GLPI.  This behaviour is 
useless for us (hosts (=pieces of metal) often change their name) and we 
would need to change it.  But GLPI has so many knobs to turn, that I am 
somehow lost ;-).

Any hint is appreciated.
