A small application will be installed on the client systems, the KACE Amp Agent. This agent periodically scans the system to collect inventory data, which is then sent back to the appliance. This agent is required in order to perform the following tasks.
- Software Distribution
- Software Metering
Alternatively, a client systems can be inventoried via the Agentless Inventory feature. This might be used on a mission critical server or a system in which an agent does not exist. The agentless inventory feature can also track additional devices such as Dell projectors and printers. Client systems utilizing Agentless Inventory will be sent a command from the KACE system periodically to collect data.
