ADM probes and sensors

ADM uses the following probes and sensors to explore applications and determine their relationships.

ADM Probes

To only collect information about active connections and active processes, disable ADM before you use these probes.

ADM uses the following probes:
Table 1. ADM Probes
Name Probe Type Description Includes Probes
AIX - ADM Multiprobe Queries for information about active (running) AIX processes and active connections - the information required to perform application dependency mapping.
  • AIX - Active Connections
  • AIX - Active Processes
HP-UX - ADM Multiprobe Queries for information about active (running) HP-UX processes and active connections - the information required to perform application dependency mapping.

This probe requires that lsof be installed and the UNIX - Active Connections probe be activated, which is inactive by default.

  • UNIX - Active Connections
  • HP-UX - Active Processes
Solaris - ADM Multiprobe Queries for information about active (running) Solaris processes and active connections - the information required to perform application dependency mapping. This probe is triggered by the Solaris Zones probe. The system triggers an ADM probe for each local zone contained in a global zone.

This probe requires that lsof be installed on the global zone.

Solaris - Active Processes

Solaris - Active Connections

UNIX - ADM Multiprobe Queries for information about active (running) UNIX processes and active connections - the information required to perform application dependency mapping.
  • UNIX - Active Connections
  • UNIX - Active Processes
Windows - ADM Multiprobe Queries for information about active (running) Windows processes and active connections - the information required to perform application dependency mapping.
  • Windows - Active Connections
  • Windows - Active Processes

ADM Sensors

ADM uses the following sensors:
