Question:

How to activate/deactivate a probe from the command line?

 

Answer:

cd to:

...\Program Files (x86)\Nimsoft\bin

Run the command to deactivate the probe:

pu -u <administrator_username> -p <password> controller probe_deactivate <probe_name>

Sample output looks like the following:

Jul 16 15:43:47:345 pu: SSL - init: mode=0, cipher=DEFAULT, context=OK
======================================================
Address: controller                  Request: probe_deactivate
======================================================

You can confirm the process is gone using Task Manager.

To activate the probe, run the command:

pu -u <administrator_username> -p <password> controller probe_activate <probe_name>
