ProbeWatch messages

During normal operations, the probe generates ProbeWatch messages and sends them to the ObjectServer. These messages tell the ObjectServer how the probe is running.

The following table describes the ProbeWatch messages that the probe generates. For information about generic Netcool/OMNIbus ProbeWatch messages, see the IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus Probe and Gateway Guide.
