Custom Probe made with SDK toolkit keeps alerting

We have created a custom probe using the Java SDK/Toolkit


However, every cycle it raises 2 alerts (at severity 'clear')

one is 'probe_discovery'

The other is "Network Interfaces is now responding"

("Network Interfaces" is the name of the resource group)

We need this custom probe since none of the CA probes can provide NIC usage as a percent of available bandwidth, and that information is required for capacity management.


We decided to just switch to the Perl API.

It doesn't support AC configuration, but it otherwise works fine.


Will the Perl SDK be updated at some point (Perl 5.14 is quite old now)

And if so, would it include the new AC interface?
