Many server operating systems support the SNMP Host Resources MIB (RFC 2790) that allows monitoring systems to collect critical performance and usage statistics from the servers. The list includes: OS400, Novell Netware, OpenVMS etc.

eG Enterprise, by default, monitors such operating systems and servers in an ‘agentless’ manner – i.e., using a remote agent, which is typically deployed on an external host and not on the monitored host. For further details on eG Enterprise’s Agentless Monitoring capability, please refer to the eG User Manual.
