PATROL security is installed as part of the agent, console server, and consoles. KMs inherit the security policy from the agent, console server, and console on which they are installed. PATROL for Sybase can operate at any of the PATROL security levels. However, higher security levels require more overhead, which can effect performance. If this is a concern, you can determine which level of security is installed and how it was implemented.
