Configure SEM connectors for agent and non-agent devices

This section describes how to configure SEM connectors.

Configure the sensor and actor connectors for each SEM agent

Use the connector configuration form to connect the agent connector to the target product that is either installed on, or remotely logging to the agent computer. After configuring the agent connectors, SEM can monitor and interact with the products and devices on that computer.

Agent connectors run locally to monitor log files, as well as data logged to the agent computer from remote devices that cannot run an agent. The active response connectors (actors) allow the agent to receive instructions from the Manager and perform active responses locally on the agent computer, such as sending pop-up messages or detaching USB devices.

Use connector profiles to configure multiple agents

Most agents in a network include a few different connector configurations. You can streamline your connector configuration process by creating connector profiles. A connector profile groups agents that share the same connector configuration.
