List of Agent Plug-ins

I am looking for a list of the possible plug-ins to the Symantec Management agent.  I would like to know what each plug-in corresponds to, for example, the Symantec Management Framework Agent is part of the Symantec Management Agent and does not require separate deployment or configuration (it does software inventory).  The Altiris Software Update Agent is what is installed when you enable the policy for the Patch Management plug-in.  If possible, I would also like to have a list of the version numbers for these plug-ins.

Specifically I am looking for information about the Application Metering plug-in in reference to HOWTO50079.  This KB talks about when summary data is sent from the agent to the server and that you have to edit a registry key on the client side to set the time interval for summary data to be sent (fuzzy factor).  It goes on to say you can set how often summary data is sent (default is 7 days). This KB refers to this time interval as “batch creation time”.   I cannot seem to find anywhere how you set this.  Is this also a registry key?

Maybe this helps a bit:

I am unsure that summary data is sent at all in 7.1, because the focus of the application metering agent changed to usage tracking.

At least all reports are gone.
