Balancing the workload of applications across your IT infrastructure is key to maintaining the performance and stability of your environment. Ensuring that IBM
To schedule probes automatically, Spectrum Control uses an algorithm to determine the best times to run the probes. Here's what that algorithm does:
All this scheduling work is based on the time zone where the Spectrum Control server is installed.
Here we go again
At the end of the week, the algorithm does it all again by rescheduling the automated probes. During the rescheduling process, it recalculates the best times to run automated probes on each day of the upcoming week. Because all automated probes are rescheduled weekly, Spectrum Control ensures that the average number of concurrent probes is kept minimized for your environment on an ongoing basis.
If you schedule a new probe during the week, the schedule of existing probes does not change. Spectrum Control considers existing probes when the schedule of the new probe is determined, but existing probes continue to run according to the previously defined schedule for that week.
For more information and other things that you should know when you choose to have probes scheduled automatically, check out How automated probes are scheduled in the IBM Knowledge Center for Spectrum Control.
