CA Unified Infrastructure Management On-Premise (Nimsoft / UIM)NIMSOFT PROBES
Is it possible to bulk configure the url_response probe?
Currently the probe does not have a bulk configuration, however a possible workaround would be:
To use the probe cfg file to add new servers, since it’s a text file you can just change the URL, and the profile name. When doing this please make sure the probe is deactivated.
Below is an example of a profile in the cfg file:
<MSN> url = http://www.msn.com active = no timeout = 15 retry = 3 QoS = yes interval = 300 group = default <alarm> active = yes max_samples = 5 average = yes threshold = 8000 thresholdBelow = 0 </alarm> </MSN>
When editing the url_response probe's configuration file directly, please note the following from the release notes:
Use a text editor like Notepad++ on Windows system and gedit on Linux system to edit your configuration file directly. If you use Notepad as an editor, it appends BOM (Byte Order Mark) for an UTF-8 encoding file and the probe does not start with a BOM included configuration file.
Do not use Raw Configuration GUI when the probe is deployed in a non-English locale.
