You can use Data Center Expert and EcoStruxure IT Gateway in parallel to monitor SNMP and NetBotz devices. You connect only the Gateway to EcoStruxure IT.
EcoStruxure IT Expert requires that you connect a Gateway. You cannot connect to IT Expert using DCE.
Note: Dual monitoring Modbus devices is not recommended because it may cause some devices to fail. Some Modbus devices do not support polling from monitoring agents.
