the action by a client to determine if a server exists at a given address. the "probe" action is itself probably just a fragment, and can be used for two reasons. one would be that the probe, if sucessful, woudl be followed by a request for processing, the other woudl be for locating servers for future use. we can assume that if we are just trying to build a directory of servers for future use, we may request that the discovered server load the probe fragment itself and continue looking. there has been discussion that this is a "idle CPU" job, and shoudl only run in the absence of anything better to do. while reasonable, the fragment will need to download the location of any servers it finds before it ceases to exist. the obvious question is the location of the download. a quick answer would be that it would download to two locations, the one that spawned this instance, and the other would be the location of the orginial client for the probe. what to do if neither are there is currently unexplored. it woudl be a pity to lose data, but i am not sure what more can be done.
a follow-up technique for getting complete responses to open-ended questions by asking. Also see clarifying.
A prompt from the interviewer to encourage more explanation or clarification of an answer. These do not suggest answers or lead respondents but tend to be very general: 'Anything else', 'In what way?', or even just sounds such as 'uh-huh'.
