Currently, many/most probes will clear the previously-sent alarms on restart (or after a probe crash), to get a "clean slate" for the probe. However, the processes probe does not do this.
- a process may go down and generate an alarm
- the server gets rebooted and the process comes up after the reboot
- the previous alarm does not get cleared even though the process is back up
The processes probe should be brought in line with other probes that clear the previously-sent alarms on restart and then do a re-check of the thresholds which are configured.
Idea Details - processes probe should clear its alarms on restart
Release : 20.3
Component : UIM - PROCESSES
Design issue - working as designed.
The processes probe current design does not support clear the previously-sent alarms on restart or after a crash.
The Engineering team is currently working on developing a new version of the probe that supports this behaviour.
There is still no ETA as per when this KB is being published in July 2021.
