UCMDB UD agent callback feature with Probe load balancing
It is known that UCMDB somehow shares the load between the probes in the same domain. But if we use UD agents and their callback feature - with this feature work? I.e. callback will always be sent to same probe, even when the discovery is triggered by another one. Anyone tried it?
One more question by the way. I heard that there's a limit for such balancing - they say it only allows 3 probes. Is it true? Did not find it documented..
Ucmdb shares the load between the probes in the same domain by its IPs but not by Probes. In order to share the load by probes is recommended to set a Probe cluster.
I think do you mean callhome. The callhome IP address that is configured on the Universal Discovery Agent belongs to a client type range that is added to a cluster. The Universal Discovery Agent supports 1 primary and 1 secondary probe. So it will not share the load using this feature, because it is configured to use specific probes.
3 probes will be recommended for domain balance, but it will depend on your environment deployment.
Hope it helps.
