Socket Probe replaced by Socket Java Probe

Product Lifecycle


The Socket Probe is planned to be deprecated by end of Jan 2019. The replacement is the Socket Java Probe which is only supported on OMNIbus 8.1.0 installed on any of the supported Operating Systems Netcool/OMNIbus Integrations Release Notice - Socket Java Probe (nco-p-socket-java-1_0)


Both the Socket probe and GLF probes were planned to be formally replaced by their Java counterparts by the end of January 2019.

The two native probes:

  • nco_p_glf
  • nco_p_socket

had continued support due to the support for Netcool/OMNIbus 7.4, which has now ended.

The two non-native probes:
  • nco_p_glf_java
  • nco_p_socket_java
should be used instead of their native probes.
