Command Center provides a distributed multi-tier architecture
by letting you configure agents that manage and monitor the Citrix
devices. This architecture reduces the load on the Command Center
server by distributing the load across the different agents. Note
that, for now, the agents are used only for monitoring entities and syslog messages, for polling and collecting data used for performance monitoring, such as CPU usage, resource utilization, and IP bytes transmitted, and
for certificate management.
The Command Center agents are installed using the Command Center installer. For more information, see After the agents are installed and connected to the Command Center server, you can view the agent details on the Administration tab of the Command Center client. You can activate the agents from the client, and then assign devices to the agent to manage.
