I am starting this discussion to hopefully get some advice/tips/tricks etc from others using the Probe in all different size environments, on changes or configuration updates that work for them and get the probe running smoother, more effective, and less chatty (less false positives) .


One thing I noticed in our environment which is about 500 Network devices we run a discovery process every 24 hours. We have to though manually sometimes go in on devices and do a manual “Force Component Re-Discovery” to get updates/state changes of the device to take effect. Anyone else experience this and or come up with a fix?

I was thinking if there was a way to cause this “Component Re-discovery once every hour or (whatever time variation you want) on each device maybe that would help take away some of the alarms we get when an interface has changed from UP to Down for example and the template does not apply properly so we miss alerts or vice versa.


Looking forward to hearing others feedback, experiences, suggestions, etc.
