I would like to be able to add my custom probes to those controlled by USM. I have the custom probe and it is driven by a cfg file, runs in the normal nimsoft way. How can I tell USM about it and set it up to be controlled by ace?
Good question! Unfortunately I do not have an answer about how to do this or even confirmation that it is possible. However, I know that the ACE picks up USM-related information from probe packages in the archive. When you update or add a probe to the local archive that supports USM, you have to restart the ACE to pick up the information it needs to work with that probe. If you explore probe packages that support USM, you might see something helpful there.
It is still possible that the ACE and/or USM need to be coded specifically with information about each supported probe. I have no idea if the information in the probe packages is sufficient on its own. It would be nice to extend the functionality of the USM with custom probes.
