Packet Analysis Sensor agents
This SolarWinds Platform topic applies only to the following products:

The software that provides a communication channel between your SolarWinds server and the monitored object to which you have deployed your Packet Analysis Sensor is called an "agent". Agents are used to send the data that QoE collects back to the SolarWinds Platform server. The agent runs as a service, and it has a small installed footprint (under 100MB installed).
