Running the probe

When the probe is run, it opens a connection to each of the agents specified in the definition file and then reads all of the events generated by each agent. If no valid connection details are specified in the definition file, the probe stops. If a connection is lost, the probe attempts to reconnect to the agent (if the AgentRetries property or -interval command line option is used). For information about properties and command line options, see Properties and command line options.

Every connection event (agent connection opened/lost/retried/closed, etc.) causes the probe to send both a ProbeWatch event and a normal event with the following tokens:

  • $ProbeHost
  • $port
  • $CauseCode
  • $description
  • $node
  • $severity
