Not exactly. Agents can give you traffic info, load server info, free space and ram, etc.
For monitoring service use nagios. It can sent you sms if server or service down.
What is concept? e.g snmp-agent..
How they are designed?
Please friend can u elaborate on any one u know ...
I asked a general one !!!
As example you have many servers. 20. You want view cpu load, memory/swap/ram usage in one window.
You install snmp on each server and give collect info in one.
I have a lots of expiriens with practical snmp usage.
