VCS 5.1SP1 onwards supports intelligent resource monitoring in addition to poll-based
monitoring. Intelligent Monitoring Framework (IMF) is an extension to the VCS
agent framework. You can enable or disable the intelligent monitoring functionality
of VCS agents as needed.

The benefits of intelligent monitoring over poll-based monitoring are as follows:

  • Faster notification of resource state changes.
  • Reduction in VCS system utilization which enables VCS to effectively monitor a large number of resources.

Below is the list of VCS agents that support IMF.
