Microsoft Monitoring Agent Requirements and Compatibility

 

When connected to System Center Operations Manager, the agent calculates the health state of the monitored computers and objects, and then reports back to the management server. The management servers centrally distribute the configuration to agents and store data received from the monitored computers. Management packs installed on the management server control this type of data collected, tasks, and alerts you receive in Operations Manager.
