Re: Explain about Device profiles and Custom polling

the relationship is kind of tenuous...custom poller is typically configured to poll a "group" of node targets for some particular mib object or expression, and "device profiles" can be part of how members of a node group are defined. but there is no requirement for that relationship.

 

most importantly, when a device profile is created or customized, it does not affect any of the native status or configuration (discovery) polling of a device, so custom-poller is the only exposed means of setting up an automated check of MIB attributes that the state or discovery pollers do not look at.
