Monitoring same host via both agent and agent less methods !

    Hi,

     

    Can we monitor same host via both agent and agent less probes ? As an example, I would like to monitor a remote host by both agent based (CDM probe) and agent less (RSP probe). This will allow Nimsoft monitoring to be unaffected even in case one scenario does not works (like network disconnection in case of agent based)Though there will be duplicate alarms from both probes, we are planning to write triggers and scripts to correlated both of them in same alert.

     

    Thanks & Regards,

    Amit Saxena

    The last time I tried this, the rsp probe generated alarms that it was monitoring a host that was running the robot, but I think it continued to monitor the host nonetheless. I do not think I found a way to disable those alarms, so I ended up filtering them on the NAS. I woudl recommend checking for a way to control that in the configuration if possible.

     

    Things may be different now, but I think you can try it and make sure it works as expected.
