Either review the probe log file, for further information on how to view the probe log file, please click here (or) review the wasp.log file on the UMP Robot box wasp folder, usual path would be C:\Program Files (x86)\Nimsoft\probes\service\wasp for errors. You could also review the below files from the same path for further clues:
    1. wasp.log
    2. _wasp.log (if the file exists)
    3. portal.log
    4. portal.log.1 (if the file exists)
    5. wasp.cfg
