Data acquisition

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 Motorola MUNO connects to a UNO alarm listener device specified by IP and port number of the device using a telnet connection. The IP and port number values are specified using the Host and Port properties in the properties file to get the ASCII Alarms stream. Once the device is connected to the probe, the alarm events start flowing automatically to probe and are then parsed to create appropriate tokens.

While parsing, the probe reads one event at a time using '\n' as event terminator and ’|’ as the token delimiter.
