AllProbe object system is made of main / master resources which are (bucket, rack, data center, provider, suppliers, subnet, connection, vlan, Tag)

Those master resources are global and the same across the system. Other type of resource which is not master resource is a host / resource, hosts can be any network or none network device e.g logical units but tipically refers to a host with at list 1 IP address.

You can associate master objects to other master objects for example, associate Rack to Data center or VLAN to subnet.

Master resources types explained:


buckets are logical containers that holds both master resources & hosts. Buckets also binded to sub users so this master resource

is important also for ACLs(sub users permissions). You nornally associate buckets to sub users to ive them access to certain parts of your account so you best use buckets with logic that describe your specific use case, e.g bucket could be a client(a set of resources specific to a client or resource group)


ׁHosts are important and fandemental resource. Hosts holds IP addresses(up to 128 IPs) and can be binded to other main system objects such as Providers, Data Centers, Network devices. Hosts are also divided by type(host type) such as network device, server, virtual server, PDU unit and more. We recomend adding Hosts to the system using wizards, Then bind them to other Resources such as Racks in Bulk mode throw the hosts update grid.


ּRacks are usually pinned to a DataCenters, IT rooms, Providers and bucket. Equipment designed to be placed in a rack is typically described as rack-mount, rack-mount instrument, a rack mounted system, a rack mount chassis, subrack, rack mountable, or occasionally simply shelf. Racks can be managed through Settings

Data Center:

Data Centers can be considered as service farms, offices, buildings. Data Centers most likly should hold Racks & IT rooms. Data Centers can be managed through Settings


Providers can be any service provider such as AWS, Google Cloud Services.. ISP or others. Providers can be managed through Settings


Subnet / IPAM:

IP address management is mostly atomatic, You can define self defined subnets or let the system add clss C subnets that are created when bind IP(s) to Hosts. IPs are binded to pre defined subnets as well so you don't have to bind IPs to Subnets yourself.



You can configure HOSTs as network device Host then bind other hosts remote ports or fibers to those network devices. Oher elements of network that can be configured are Fibers, VLANs and Subnets..

IT room:

You can manage Your IT rooms and design them with our graphical widget which makes easy to place Objects such as Rakcs & Resourcees inside the room grid.
