Altiris Agent

The software that is installed on the computers that you want to manage. It facilitates interactions between Notification Server and a managed computer. The agent receives requests for information from Notification Server, sends data to Notification Server, and downloads files. The Altiris Agent also lets you install and manage solution plug-ins that add functionality to the agent.

The Altiris Agent allows users to automatically stream applications. The first time a user accesses a streaming application, the Altiris SVS server automatically installs the Altiris Agent. The Altiris Agent contains the Application Manager.
