Remote Probes (dedicated or share)



When using site planner tool. its stated 6 remote probe for 60 sec interval and 3 remote probes for 5min/15 mins internal. Does it mean 9 probes are required? Do they need to be dedicated PC/Server or can they be sharing a server with other application?

thank you very much for your KB-Post. The suggestion means, you will either need 6 probes, if you want to monitor with 60 seconds scanning interval. Or 3 probes, if you monitor with 5 minutes scanning interval. Usually Remote Probes can be installed on machines, that have other applications running on.

best regards.
