2018 Update Rollup 2

System OverviewPermanent link for this heading

A basic Fabasoft app.telemetry installation consists of the following components:

  • one Fabasoft app.telemetry server,
  • Fabasoft app.telemetry agents,
  • Fabasoft app.telemetry WebAPI and
  • Fabasoft app.telemetry clients.

The following illustration shows an example of a Fabasoft app.telemetry system using a heterogeneous environment:

Fabasoft app.telemetry ServerPermanent link for this heading

The Fabasoft app.telemetry server is a Microsoft Windows service or a Linux daemon running on a dedicated management server. It is the central component of Fabasoft app.telemetry. The server stores the complete Fabasoft app.telemetry configuration, controls the configured Fabasoft app.telemetry agents, manages Software-Telemetry sessions and administrates the evaluation of counter checks and availability checks. The Fabasoft app.telemetry server can be accessed by clients through a web server like Apache or Microsoft Internet Information Services (the web server is running on the same server as the Fabasoft app.telemetry server). Supported authentication methods are Microsoft Windows integrated authentication (for Microsoft Windows platforms only) or basic authentication.

Fabasoft app.telemetry AgentPermanent link for this heading

The Fabasoft app.telemetry agent is a Microsoft Windows service or Linux daemon that is responsible for providing counter values, availability information and Software-Telemetry data to the Fabasoft app.telemetry server. The Fabasoft app.telemetry agent must be installed on systems that potentially should provide data for Fabasoft app.telemetry.

Fabasoft app.telemetry WebAPIPermanent link for this heading

The Fabasoft app.telemetry WebAPI is a web service hosted in Apache or Microsoft Internet Information Services that is responsible for the transfer of Software-Telemetry data from Java Script instrumentations to a Fabasoft app.telemetry agent. The Fabasoft app.telemetry WebAPI must be installed on systems that also host a Fabasoft app.telemetry agent. The Fabasoft app.telemetry WebAPI is a prerequisite for the use of the Fabasoft app.telemetry integration for Java Script and must be available to the respective web browsers.

Fabasoft app.telemetry ClientPermanent link for this heading

The Fabasoft app.telemetry client is a web-based client application, which can be accessed through any of the several modern web browser clients. The Fabasoft app.telemetry client provides the Fabasoft app.telemetry functionality to the users.
