Verax Management Agent

Verax Management Agent is an optional software agent running standalone on managed hosts, providing additional monitoring capabilities on behalf of Verax NMS & APM in situations when:

  • Host standard agent is unavailable, or a custom agent is required
  • Host standard agent does not provide all the required management information
  • Monitoring of private networks behind firewalls is required, when port forwarding or VPN is not available
  • Performance data has to be collected locally for precise end-user-experience monitoring
  • Performance data has to be collected locally due to security reasons or license limitations
  • Data collection continuity is required, regardless of network connectivity to the NMS

  • Support for many types of sensors and performance counters (e.g. shell, JMX, ODBC and others)
  • Rich library of predefined sensors and counters

  • Agent-initiated connection establishment with firewall traversal
  • Embedded, password protected, secure HTTPS server for agent management
  • Watchdog and self-diagnostics ensuring agent health
  • Automatic discovery by Verax NMS & APM
  • Sensors and performance counter charts fully visualized in Verax NMS & APM
  • Configuration GUI in Verax NMS & APM
