To manage your resources, you need to discover and gather information of all your resources. The resources are discovered and monitored using the agent or gateway data collectors installed in your system.
An agent is an executable application that runs on managed devices having MS Windows and Linux Operating Systems. It manages devices such as servers, desktop and laptops. You can discover and collect data of your device through agents installed on your systems.
To collect data through the agent, create an agent management profile:
Go to Setup > Resources > Management Profiles and enter:
Client Name: Name of the Client.
Profile Type: Specifies whether the profile is created for agent or gateway.
If the profile type is Agent, enter:
- Device Type: Select the Device Type from the drop-down list.
- Device: Select the Device from the drop-down list.
Profile Name: Give a name to the profile being created. The naming convention typically should match the Device Type.
Description: Optional description in brief about the profile being created.
A new View Management Profile page display details for the agent profile. The Management Profile created is the master agent.
