There are 4 main components to the system:

Cetrus Server ( http://www.cetrus.com )
Manager
Agent
Plugin

The Cetrus Server is the main data repository and is located on the internet.

The Manager is the conduit between Agents and the Server. The Manager runs on your Windows Server and connect to the Cetrus Server.

The Agent is the receptacle for a plugin. The Agent runs on your Client Computer(s) and collects data.

A Plugin is loaded at run time to perform specific functionality, such as a software inventory. The Agent loads a Plugin.
