Data Flow Probes and Probe Clusters

The Data Flow Probe is the main component responsible for requesting tasks from the server, scheduling and executing discovery and integration tasks, and sending the results back to the UCMDB Server. You define a range of network addresses for a specific, installed Data Flow Probe. Each Data Flow Probe is identified by its name, chosen during the Data Flow Probe installation process.

A probe cluster is a logical container for a number of Data Flow Probes. You define a network range for a cluster. The cluster is responsible for calculating how to distribute the overall set of IP address ranges between the Probes in the cluster evenly. The split of the network range is done purely based on the potential number of IP addresses available in the IP address ranges, not on the actual number of active IP addresses available in the ranges.
