Each probe uses a different method to acquire data. Which method the probe uses depends on the target system from which it receives data.
The Probe for Alcatel-Lucent ITM-NM/OMS connects to the XMC interface on the Lucent ITM-NM using the TCP/IP protocol. The data is parsed into Netcool/OMNIbus events and forwarded to the ObjectServer. The interface must be set up correctly by a qualified Lucent engineer for the probe to work with Lucent ITM-NM. The Lucent ITM-NM platform has the interface embedded, but it requires licensing and configuration.
