Executing multiple instances of same probe with different executable name and port in the same robot

Hi all,

 

Is it possible to execute multiple instances of same probe with different executable name and port in the same robot ?

 

I am taking RSP probe as an example. Assuming RSP probe works best with around 40 hosts (according to Nimsoft support), can we put duplicate instance of existing RSP probe with a different probe name, installation directory and port so as to monitor say 200 hosts from a single robot by running 5 instances of it ?

 

This scenario comes when customer gives a single box / VM to monitor 1000+ hosts in their network but there is a limitation on number of devices a single instance of probe can matter.

 

If this is possible technically, please let me know how to do the same ? Also is this approach supported by Nimsoft ?

 

Regards,

Amit Saxena
