Cover
When selecting an enterprise-level monitoring solution, one of the first decisions the IT department needs to make is whether to opt for an agent based, or agentless monitoring solution. The most important part of this decision making process is to understand what metrics you need to measure. Once you understand this, the process of finding the correct solution is quite simple.
