Resource Monitoring Agents

For testing, you would need many machines. For example, you might have one machine with the application server, another machine with the database server, and some machines to apply the user load. Due to network or firewall issues, sometimes, it becomes difficult for multiple machines to connect to each other. Resource Monitoring Agents are installed on the target machines so that they can establish a connection with HCL Quality Server to gather resource statistics of the target host.

The agents always try to connect with the server through the HTTP/HTTPS protocol. You must install the agents and start it. When you stop the agent, the data sources that you have already added persist but the live data will not be available.
