Developing a utility with agents
Posted on 2004-04-21
I`m pretty new in Java world so it`s possible that my question is pretty basic.
I`m about to develop a utility which is based on a master server, which contains the data of the system and run all the computations I`ll need.
This master server shall get information from agents which are installed on different locations.
The data will contain stuff like CPU Usage of the OS, FileSystems installed etc.
I`m looking for the right architecture of communication between the server and the agents.
This communication shall be secured of course, so no one whith access to the server on the IP port will be able to act as an agent.
Can you recommend me what is the best way to implement it?
