Specifying what the probe does during inactivity

The probe has a timeout facility that allows it to disconnect from the data source if it fails to receive the next alarm data within a predefined amount of time.

To specify how long the probe waits before disconnecting, use the Inactivity property. After this length of time, the probe disconnects from the data source, and flushes any outstanding events to the ObjectServer.

If you set the Inactivity property to 0, the probe never disconnects from the data source regardless of whether there is a period of inactivity.
