The ADA Inventory probe is the integration point between CA Application Delivery Analysis (CA ADA) and 
CA Unified Infrastructure Management
 (CA UIM). The integration allows you to view application response data in context for servers inside of the Unified Management Portal (UMP).
The views displayed are:
  • Performance by Network - Packet Loss
  • Hosted Applications - Data Transfer Time
  • Total Bytes vs Retransmitted Bytes
  • Server Connection Time
  • Downstream Dependencies
  • Server Response Time
  • Incidents
  • Total Sessions vs Refused Sessions
  • Investigations
  • Total Transaction Time
The integration enables customers to drill from CA UIM to CA ADA for additional diagnostic detail, and back to CA UIM from within CA ADA.
