Probing Distributions are configurable policies for triggering agent-to-target probing.

Key Probing Distribution Concepts:

  • Probing Distribution
  • Probing Distributions are created for ongoing probing between one or more agents to one or more targets
  • Probing Configuratin
  • Probing Session
  • Probing Interval

Simplified Probing Distribution

  • Group and tag assignments eliminate the overhead of updating Probing Distributions when new agents and targets are onboarded, replaced or removed from a tenant
    • Agents and targets belong to a single group representing their logical role in the network
    • An unlimited number of tags are to define subgroups or logical relationships across groups
    • robing Distributions are automatically updated when agents and targets are added or removed from these groups and tags
  • Individual agent and target assignments are helpful for specific and short-term probing tests
