- Answering to queries for real-time information from client applications(for example: Sysload Analyst Console)
- Sending Alerts to client applications(for example Sysload Analyst Console)
- Storing metrics

The File Server answers queries from the Management Server and transfers history queries from client applications (for example Sysload Analyst Console) that remotely configure the Agent. The File Server reads raw data (every 5 minutes) consolidates it and then returns 12 monthly values.
