ABAP Agents VS Regular Monitoring Tools
Can anybody explain which advantages (on practise) abap agents (sapccm4x)really give us?
According to SAP CCMS Agents documentation, agent take technical monitoring information from share memory of the satellite system and then send it to central system (SOLMAN), ok - after registration there is TCP/IP connection created but it continue to use 2 RFCs - one for collection and another for analyze... All the same technology if there were not any agents...
So what for that tcp/ip connection? And what if satellite system is down... abap rfc's are down too, so we cannot get any information from remote system BUT Sap says that ABAP agents doesn't need any work process, ok we see it, but what are the conclusion from that, I do not see any.
Sorry for endless message,
any tips & informations would appreciate,
