       Acgvision-agent is the client  used  by  ACGVision  to  monitor  system
       activity.  It  comes by default with abilities to monitor CPU activity,
       memory, filesystem free space, processes. It needs to be setup from the
       server acgvision.

       Once  the acgvision-agent starts it asks to the server what to monitor,
       which commands to execute and when to execute them. Once it executes  a
       command.  It  checks the result and compares it to event values. If the
       value corresponds to the criterias it sends an event to the core  which
       will  email  it to the host owner and followers. The event will also be
       display on the web console.

       It communicates to the server using SOAP using http or https. The agent
       has  the abilities to repport events and execute scripts on failure. It
       is also compatible with most of nagios' scripts.
