15.13.2. The Drift Server Plug-in
The server processes drift changes through a server-side plug-in. This plug-in must be enabled for the server to recognize and process drift data sent from the agent.
As with other server-side plug-ins, the drift plug-in can be disabled. However, this effectively and entirely disables drift monitoring on that server, and no drift information is processed or stored. That is slightly different than the behavior of other server subsystems. For example, an individual alert sender can be disabled, but alert detections are still run and alert information is still processed, stored, and displayed by the JBoss ON server.
