Does Hyperic support distributed monitoring?

I'm evaluating Hyperic and I don't explicitly see that it supports multiple sites with a server for each site. Is a distributed setup possible?

Thanks,
-Mike

Yes and No.

AFAIK, there is not a distributed manager model.

You can put a manager at each location and then manage each manager independently.



BUT...


You can setup an Agent at each location and have that agent monitor all the systems at that location and report up to a centralized manager.

The two major downsides of this method is a) you have to create remote platforms/servers manually (no auto discovery); b) If the agent or agent node is down then you are not monitoring that whole location.
