no probes in failover node

How come there are not probes in the failover node of the cluster architecture ? Why is it only the master node has probes, shouldn't the master pass-on this configuration.

And how is it that on my master node there are more sensors than the ones that appear on the failover node. I have over 9000sensors on the master node, but only 1000 on the failover node. Why ?

failover master

Since a longer time this problem does not exist anymore since (by default but configurable) the probes connect to all cluster nodes to report the data and the failover node gets connectivity to the probes too.

So, the statement from Konstantin Wolff is not correct anymore.

Hi,
remote probes cannot be used in a clustered environment. They will exclusively connect to the master node. Additional, only sensors residing below the Cluster Probe are monitored by all cluster nodes. Sensors on other probes will only be monitored by the master node. For further details,, please see the documentation on clustering in PRTG.
Best regards
