As soon as a NetSolve server (computational resource) is added to the NetSolve system, it is necessary to start an NWS sensor. This sensor is started on the server after its registration with the agent to avoid any incoherency with the NetSolve system. The NWS sensor is totally independent from the NetSolve processes running on the server.
At present, the NWS sensor is only detecting the CPU speed of the computational resource. Future implementations will expand this functionality to include monitoring for the amount of physical memory available per computational resource, as well as the latency/bandwidth of the communication between each server and the client. These improvements will require an additional sensor to be started on the client.
