The VRRP probe collects information from a redundancy group of routers that are involved in a VRRP group. The routers use the industry standard Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol to communicate with one another. The VRRP probe discovers the group number, the virtual IP address, and the virtual MAC address for a VRRP 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 VRRP probe uses standard MIB information and creates VRRPGroup objects and VRRPEndpoint objects.
