How to pause the connection between Core and remote probe.



The Internet Connection from a Customer is very slow. We capture all Packets at this location with a Remote Node to analyse them later. But we wont needless load the internet connection with the Uplink from this Remote Probe to our Core Server.

Can a Remote Probe stop transfering for any time without warping captured Data or must we have on every location a own Core Server?

Although remote probes will retain monitored data for a certain amount of time, data monitored beyond this point would be lost. As such, it is not recommended to disconnect the probe in case from the core.
