When accessing reports in VigilEnt Security Manager, what information is actually pulled from the Database and what information comes directly from the system?
VigilEnt Security Manager 4.x
When accessing reports in VigilEnt Security Manager (VSM), report information is pulled from the VSM database. This database must reside on a Microsoft SQL 2000 or higher server.
When a report is executed in the VSM GUI against a specific machine or endpoint, the agent monitoring that endpoint is contacted by the VigilEnt Security Server service (VSS). The agent will gather the information from the endpoint and then send the information back to VSS. VSS enters that information in the database. You can then view the report from within the VSM GUI at anytime by accessing it under Completed Tasks.
