2.1 Configuration Server

The Configuration Server (not to be confused with the Operations Center Configuration Manager) holds sets of configuration data that it receives from the configuration database. These data sets are called configuration profiles; and while several might exist, only one configuration profile can be active. A configuration profile consists of various information, such as:

  • A set of agents

  • The source with which each agent must communicate

  • The rulesets to apply to the information from the sources (see Working with Rulesets, for more information)

The Configuration Server sends the appropriate configuration profile data to the Event Manager’s agents and to the Event Manager’s Alarm server.
