Cluster Behaviors



Hi to all,

I need some explanation about "Cluster Monitoring Exclusion" functions.

It's only to monitor a group of device/sensor by only one node of the cluster or there are other behaviors? For example, If I exclude the master node from monitoring of one group, can i always see the graph ad data collection from master node?

Best Regards, Giorgio

thank you very much for your KB-Post. If you exclude the Master Node, to not monitor a particular target (under the Cluster Probe), then only the Failover-Node will monitor it, and you can only see the values then from the Failover Node.

best regards.
