Reconnection and backoff strategy

Use the RetryCount and RetryInterval properties to specify how the probe reacts if the connection to the NNMi system is lost or cannot be established.

Use the RetryCount property to specify whether the probe attempts to reconnect to the NNMi system. Setting the property to 0, the default value, means that the probe does not try to reconnect and simply shuts down upon any connection failure to the NNMi system. Any other positive value specifies the number of times the probe tries to reconnect before shutting down.

Use the RetryInterval property to specify the number of seconds between each attempt to reconnect to the NNMi system.

Setting the RetryInterval property to 0 means that the probe uses an exponentially increasing interval between connection attempts. First the probe waits 1 second, then 2 seconds, then 4 seconds, and so on up to a maximum of 4095 seconds. If this limit, or the number of connection attempts is reached, the probe shuts down.
