On the Gateway Server machine, schedule daily Manager runs to collect operating system data from a set of managed machines, called managed nodes. The manager runs can be created, deleted, and modified from the Gateway Manager.
The managed nodes should run capacity agents. The components to be installed and custom options to configure are described in Installing the Agent on UNIX and Linux and Installing the Agent on Windows.
For more information on data collection using Gateway Server Agents, see the following topics:
Another type of agent, the Proxy Agent, collects data remotely specifically for Microsoft servers. For more information, see Collecting data using Proxy Agents.
