The HSRP probe collects information from a redundancy group of routers that are involved in an HSRP group. The routers use the proprietary Cisco Hot Standby Router Protocol to communicate with one another. The HSRP probe discovers the group number, the virtual IP address, and the virtual MAC address for an HSRP group; the priority number and status for each router endpoint that is participating in the group; and the currently active router in the group. The HSRP probe uses vendor-specific MIB information.

The HSRP probe creates HSRPGroup objects and HSRPEndpoint objects.
