How do I monitor services running on a slave cluster node



I have two nodes set up as a cluster, one node (primary) in the UK and the slave in the US.

I can add sensors to the local probe on the primary so I can check services on it, but I can't seem to find how to monitor services on the slave node as the probe doesn't appear in the interface.

Is this possible and if it is what am I doing wrong? What can't I see the probe on the slave node?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Jason,

You should be able to see the cluster probe in the web interface and add sensors to it. Make sure that your user account is in a group that is allowed to see the cluster probe and you can also do a search and put in Cluster Probe Device.

It should be in a separate group that is created for all cluster probes. Any device that is created in the group will be monitored by both the Core and Cluster probes.

Also, make sure that the probe is connected and activated by checking the settings under Setup->System Administration->Cluster and the Cluster Status under Setup->PRTG Status->Cluster Status
