iSeries Agent

The Argent Agent for iSeries is a native TCP/IP server program running on customers’ iSeries machines. It accepts and validates incoming requests from Argent’s monitoring engines and returns performance metrics and other important system information to the monitoring engine.

Collecting information about customers’ systems and monitoring for conditions that exceed enterprise policies require that the Argent Agent for iSeries be active and available at all times. It is implemented as a non-stop server process that is expected to be running continuously in the background on each iSeries system.
