Can health_index probe be used to monitor Nimsoft Health in version 8.2 and later? Can anymore explain in details the functionality of the health_index probe.
Thanks in advance.
Yes, you can have a health score generated for UIM Health too, take a look at the below cookbook article it has good short description on how a Health Score works
Generating a Health Score | CA Infrastructure Management Cookbook
How the health_index Probe WorksThe health_index probe, which is deployed to the primary hub during installation, collects alarms generated by monitoring probes from the UIM message bus. The health_index probe uses these alarms to calculate health scores for configuration items and to produce an overall health score for a computer system. A health score is based on the number of alarms from monitoring probes collected from the UIM message bus. The health_index probe counts the alarm messages and uses this information to perform its calculation. The health_index calculator produces a health score for configuration items and an overall health score for a computer system. Health scores are visible in Unified Service Manager on the Metrics tab.
For each health score, the health_index probe generates two QoS metrics: one for computer system health and one for the configuration item type health. This allows you to drill down and get more detailed information on an alarm condition
