Installing the Gateway Server components
A complete Gateway Server installation comprises the Gateway Server console and the Capacity Agents, which are installed on the target systems. The Capacity Agents collect operating system data from their target systems and send it to the Gateway Server, which in turn sends it to the ETL Server.
