1.2. How It Works

To illustrate how the SysOrb components work together, Figure 1 shows a setup of a SysOrb Server, some SysOrb Agents and a SysOrb Web Interface.

Figure 1: SysOrb Overview

The setup consists of a SysOrb Server, a SysOrb Agent and a SysOrb Web Interface. When a SysOrb Agent checks in on the SysOrb Server information about the SysOrb Agent's current status is stored in the SysOrb Server's database.

The SysOrb Web Interface connects to the SysOrb Server and through this interface the SysOrb user can monitor the network, add new SysOrb Agents and similar operations.
