This table shows every device that has ever been discovered in all snapshots. This includes
Serial Number (IP Fabric Unique SN not Hardware SN),
Last discovery time used for discovery.

Sometimes it can be helpful for troubleshooting purposes to delete already discovered devices.

Perhaps your team wants to delete all discovery history older than 1 month ago in order to speed up the discovery process. The picture below shows using a
Last discovery time filter to check for entries
<= to a certain date.
