EdgeSight Server

The EdgeSight Server collects data from the distributed agents and allows administrators to display the data to identify potential issues in the enterprise and to assist in problem resolution. The following components make up the EdgeSight Server:
In an environment where EdgeSight for Endpoint Agents are monitoring virtual desktops in a pool, additional components are required: • Web Server—The web server component accepts the data uploads from the agents and then displays performance and availability information in a wide range of standard reports through the EdgeSight Server Console. • Database Server—The database server component stores the data uploaded from the agents and acts as the data source for Reporting Services. • Report Server—The report server component generates performance and availability information in the form of reports. The report server uses Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services.
• EdgeSight Agent Database Server—This provides data storage for agents running on virtual desktops in a pool. The EdgeSight Web Server includes database broker components from which agents acquire a connection to an agent database server. The database broker components are installed by default. For more information, see “EdgeSight Components Required for Virtual Desktop Monitoring” on page 12. • Agent data file share—The agent data file share provides storage for files such as log files and INI files which are not stored on the EdgeSight Agent Database Server.
