What does "Message Queue Probe/Core" mean ?



Under probe health there is a "Message Queue Probe/Core" and usually it says 0 Items. But now a machine has 1 Items every now and then. What does this mean ?

as mentioned in the explanation of the 'Probe Health Sensor' the Message Queue Length Probe/Core is the number of monitoring results from the probe not yet processed by the core. Should usually stay below 1/10 of the sensor count.
A 'rise' to 1 item is not critical at all.
