Re: Difference Between Agent Based and Agentless Monitoring
Both agent-based and agentless monitoring have their benefits: 1. In terms of Deployment: Agentless Monitoring is easier to deploy as compared to agent-based. In agent-based monitoring, agents need to be deployed on each server. 2. Network Overhead: Agentless monitoring requires additional network traffic as the raw performance data is transported to a remote data collector. Whereas agent-based monitoring is bandwidth efficient because data is collected locally. Read more comparison details at Agent-based vs agentless monitor.
In my opinion, choose according to the need and resources in hand. If you have enough bandwidth go for Agentless monitor.
