When I set up an instance, TCP/IP is listed as a method for collecting. How does this work?
TCP/IP monitoring is relatively new for Enterprise arrays, e.g. VSP, HUS-VM, Gx00. For Modular platforms, such as AMS & HUS, TCP/IP monitoring has been available for a long time.
For Enterprise arrays, TCP/IP monitoring talks to the Service Processor of the array. Please note that this collection method has some restrictions in terms of metrics collected and query options. See HTnM Installation Guide for specific details.
