Multiprobes contain one or more simple probes
configured to extract specific information from manageable devices by executing multiple
queries with a single authentication.
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
Complete the form using
