The performance of the Probe for BMC Patrol depends on many factors (for example, the network latency and the number, location, and configuration of agents). The optimum number of agents configured for each Probe for BMC Patrol depends on these factors.
When the probe starts, it connects to every
agent defined in the
.def file. Consequently, the
time taken for the probe to start depends on the number of agents
in the file. If the time taken to start seems excessive, create two
and share the agents between the two. Then run two probes, each using
.deffile until implications on probe performance are fully understood for the particular installation.
