The message bus probe does not support an EMS failover option presently.
The probe should allow the possibility to configure a second EMS endpoint by introducing SecondaryHost and SecondaryPort properties.
In our setup, the customer's EMS cluster consists of two instances where alarms between both instances are fully synchronised, and both instances are able to provide alarm data.
The probe should start processing alarms from the secondary EMS instance when it detects a problem connecting to the primary instance. Ideally, it should also support EMS fail-back by periodically checking whether connectivity to the primary EMS instance is possible.
Currently, the probe only periodically restarts when it loses connection to the configured EMS and tries to reconnect to the same EMS instance after the restart. This is repeated until the probe succeeds in connecting.
Multiple EMS instances are not uncommon, and anyone can benefit from this feature.
