This T ivoli Monitoring envir onment contains the following components: Tivoli Enterprise Portal client The portal has a user interface based on Java for viewing and monitoring your enterprise. Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server The portal server is placed between the client and the T ivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server and enables r etrieval, manipulation, and analysis of data fr om the monitoring agents. The T ivoliEnterprise Portal Server is the central r epository for all user data. Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server The monitoring server acts as a collection and contr ol point for alerts r eceived fr om the monitoring agents, and collects their performance and availability data. The T ivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server is also a r epository for historical data. Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Agent, Microsoft .NET Framework agent This monitoring agent collects data and distributes the data to the T ivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server, T ivoli Enterprise Portal Server , T ivoli Enterprise Portal, T ivoli Data W arehouse, and T ivoliIntegrated Portal. 2The Micr osoft .NET Framework agent Installation and Configuration Guide
