QuickMon has a plug-in architecture that allow 'agents' to be added to the system easily. There are two 'types' of agents:
  • Collectors - gathers information about the state of some resource, service or whatever the creator of the collector implements.
  • Notifiers - reports/records 'alerts' in some format. This could be in any means that record or sends information.
A set of collectors and notifiers can be configured in what is called a 'monitor pack' to all operate together. This pack is essentially an XML configuration file that describes which agents to use and the settings needed to configure them. A monitor pack can contain multiple collectors and notifiers, even of the same type, each one with different configuration parameters.
To use these 'Monitor packs' you can use either the provided Windows client application or Windows service.
