Multiprobes contain one or more simple probes configured to extract specific
information from manageable devices by executing multiple queries with a single
You can schedule multiprobes to run any time in the discovery process to make
exploration more efficient. One common use for multiprobes is as identity probes.
Identity probes ask a device for information such as its name and serial number, and
then use the results of those queries to update existing CIs in the CMDB.
To process the data returned from a multiprobe, you must create multisensors, which
run scripts that process the data returned by the multiprobes. Multisensors
typically use the same name as their corresponding multiprobes.
Complete the form using
the following settings:
- Probe type: Multiprobe.
