Yes, there is a very big difference.
A primary inference is used to represent that the inferred element exists because of primary node. So in this case that the SI was exists because of the DiscoveryProcess. In general if all the primary inferences go away the node will be deleted.
An associate inference is much more informational. You are saying that the DiscoveredProcesses is related in some way to the SI.
OK for this, but is there any other side difference?
In fact I would like to understand how ADDM discovers communication between SI ? I was thinking it takes netstat result to understand that 2 processes are communicating together, then if they are linked to any SI, creates communication relationship. Am I wrong here ?
If it's the way it works is it the same if the process is primary inference or just associated to the SI ?
Hope I'm clear enough.
Am I unclear in my last question or completely out of topic ?
It's not that clear in my mind now if processes association to SI is used in order to create communication relationships, can you please highlight on this ?

The various communication functions follow InferredElement:Inference::DiscoveryProcess so it will follow Primary, Cpontributor and Associate inference relationships.
