The JBoss Operations Network Agent is a standalone Java application. Only one agent is required per machine, regardless of how many resources you require the agent to manage.
The JBoss Operations Network Agent does not ship fully configured. Once the agent has been installed and configured it can be run as a Windows service from a console, or run as a daemon or
init.d script in a UNIX environment.
A JBoss Operations Network Agent must be installed on each of the machines being monitored in order to collect data.
The JBoss Operations Network Agent is typically installed on the same machine on which Red Hat JBoss Data Grid is running, however where there are multiple machines an agent must be installed on each machine.
For more detailed information about configuring JBoss Operations Network agents, see the JBoss Operations Network Installation Guide.
