So, I recently installed the remote probe on my pool of servers to reduce load on the core installation. Specifically, I need 3 WMI sensors per device, and with 300+ servers it was really crushing the core's performance and reliability. So that's done. and the load distribution did it's job. But I'm running into some 'growing pains' since the change. So I guess this is both a request for answers and I'm sure some will be a request for features.
1) a scriptable solution for installing the remote probe. a few command line switches would really speed up installations.
2) Grouping devices under Root. Again scale this out to hundreds of probes and groups at the devices/Root level would be a life saver. This includes Sensor Settings Inheritance.
3) It would be nice to me able to move a sensor from one probe to another. and I mean move not copy. it sucks loosing years worth of trending data because you're trying to distribute load on a growing system.
ps, the new business sensor is nice, I really like the way you can select sensors without defining the sensor IDs, but the values of those sensors are often important, not just an up/down. if the business process could have the values or if sensor factory could have this method of sensor selection that would be great.
