Issue/Introduction

Is it possible to configure probe to only run between defined hours on defined days?
eg Monday - Friday 07:00 - 17:30

Environment

Component : UNIFIED INFRASTRUCTURE MGMT

Resolution

The robot does have the possibility to schedule the start and stop of the probe but not to the degree you want

In IM right click on the probe and choose edit.

change the type to timed and define the range you want the probe to run eg


This would run at 5 minute intervals Monday to Friday and not run on Saturday or Sunday.

What we cannot do is define a start and stop time Daily.

To achieve a stop and start daily we would need to use a 3rd party scheduler (CRON , WinSched) to use the probe utility to stop and start the probe
