When you load a KM from the PATROL Console for Windows or the PATROL Console for UNIX, the KM files are loaded on all the PATROL Agents to which the console is connected. The KM icons appear in the console, usually under each agent icon, during discovery. Each PATROL Agent then collects data based on the instructions defined in the KM.
Preloading KMs is a PATROL Agent feature that causes KM files to continue to run on the agent when no consoles are connected. KMs that are not preloaded collect data only while a PATROL console is connected to the PATROL Agent.
Before you can use the KMs that you have installed, the KM files must be loaded into the PATROL console so that the product's applications, commands, and parameters appear in the PATROL console. The following table lists the KM files in this product that you can load. For more information about the steps for loading KM files in Loading the PATROL for Microsoft Windows Servers KMs.
Preloaded KMs collect data as long as the PATROL Agent runs, even when no PATROL console is connected. When you view a preloaded KM's data collection history, you will not see any gaps that would otherwise occur (because of the console's absence).
By default, no .kml files are preloaded on the PATROL Agent. To use the .kml files described in the following table, add them to the preload list for the appropriate PATROL Agents and load them on the console.
