Agents provide an additional method to poll devices that are part of a separate network or have intermittent connectivity to the network with your Orion server.
To deploy agents to devices that can be accessed from the Orion server, click Deploy Agent on my Network. For more information, see Deploy agents to monitored nodes.
To deploy agents manually to devices, click Download Agent Installation Files. This option is often used when deploying agents to devices that are not on the same network as the Orion server. For more information, see Deploy the agent manually to a Windows computer.
