The probe breaks event data down into tokens and parses them into elements. Elements are used to assign values to ObjectServer fields; the field values contain the event details in a form that the ObjectServer understands.

The CBE events that the probe receives contain unlimited number of Extended Data Elements (EDE) and Context Data Elements (CDE). Within each of these element types, the probe groups the respective elements based on their parent-child relation; and then sorts all the elements in the parent and child sections by their associated values.
