  • 1.  SNMPCOLLECTOR PROBE - Architecture

    Posted Jan 16, 2019 05:37 AM

    Hello CA Guys,


    We have a question about the architecture of the SNMPCOLLECTOR probe. Will be the first time we will use this probe.

    We have a client with 6000 Devices that will be monitored via SNMPCOLLECTOR.


    Reading the probe documentation, we came to the conclusion that we should divide the number of devices in 2000 Devices per SNMPCOLLECTOR probe.


    Then, we will have 3 SNMPCOLLECTOR with 2000 devices for a single client each.

    The question is: Each probe will be installed in a separate HUB (example: hub001, hub002, hub003) or we can install the 3 probes in 1 hub and 2 robots (example hub001, robot001, robot002)?


    Thanks for your support

    The volume of devices will produce a high volume of collected metrics which will benefit from using the hub internal spooler rather than the robot spooler.

    So I definitely recommend deploying to 3 hubs and not installing on a robot.

    Hi Jean,


    Yes, and 3 separate hubs would be best due to the potential number of metrics being collected and requirements of the probe.
