Chapter 13. Distributed monitoring

Resource Manager supports additional performance collection and event monitoring daemons on the Resource Manager master host and on other hosts.

This feature allows you to

  • Distribute processor, disk, and network load across multiple servers.
  • Collect performance and event data from remote networks that cannot be reached by the Resource Manager master host.
  • Configure more than one set of monitoring settings, such as different cycle times, for the zenperfsnmp daemon.

At installation, Resource Manager is configured with one hub and one collector (each named localhost) on the master host. The initial hub and collector cannot be removed.
