  • 1.  Globally change all probe profile settings?

    Posted Sep 19, 2016 02:29 PM

    Hello, wondering what method could I use to accomplish the following. We have to change all instances of our url_response probe and w/in all active profiles that are setup up, we have to change w/in the probes cfg to turn on sampling and alert at 3 samples. Right now they are all set to average=no. So have to change "average=yes" and add the line: "max_samples=3"


    Its not a global setting w/in the probe otherwise would just create an updated archive package and deploy.

    Since each profile has its own unique name, can we use a pu command or a script to go thru each instance, traverse each profile and then make the following change below?



       <profile_name>  //could be many of these and all different





    Has anyone done anything similar to this in the past that they could share?

    This is tricky topic to achive and let me try to see if the following approach works for you.

    I'm not going to say this is the best.


    \> pu -u *** -p YYY /<domain>/<hub>/<robot>/controller probe_config_set url_response "profile/profile_01/alarm" average yes "" <robot>


    \> pu -u *** -p YYY /<domain>/<hub>/<robot>/controller probe_config_set url_response "profile/profile_01/alarm" max_samples 3 "" <robot>

    Hi Yu,

    Thanks. Issue is I don't have the full list of all the profiles defined w/in each url_response probe instance. I can get a list of all the url_response probe instances by doing a Tools - Find - Probe - url_response and I then have each instances location/address. 

    With that list I can then throw them all into excel and add the

    pu -u -p [location of each url_response instance address] get_info

    Copy that out then modify so I could run in bat format and re-direct to a txt file.

    That would return the full list of all profiles w/in each probe instance.

    Then I could extract all the profile names and then throw them into excel again with the commands above to modify each profile's settings. 

    Its a bit messy but might work and save me some time.
