HTTP High Scale Data Collection Agent
Why do we need HTTP Data Collection?
Data collection on objects in your system can be used for multiple reasons:
- Internal status monitoring
- Trends analysis and history collection
- Counters and states based event generation
The HTTP data collection agent is used for advanced correlations on data located on web
sites in HTML format. This is not as organized as the CSV format, however, you
can use regular expressions to extract data from it. For these files, history values and change
notifications may be very important.
The HTTP data collection agent is created for large scale operations. It can collect information from
many HTML pages in many distant locations simultaniously.
The product enables defining event triggers based on the data collected. The event triggers launch
user defined commands, which can be, for example, an SNMP trap or any other command.
The agent can perform this operation very fast using asynchronous operations and complex
algorithms. The agent does not wait for a response from a given node to monitor other nodes.
It contains many flow control parameters that enable it to work in all kinds of networks.
On the node level, the agent supports:
- Monitoring frequency
- Monitoring hours
