RMS components

The Control Compliance Suite can use Symantec RMS to retrieve data from your enterprise network. RMS passes collected data to the Data Processing Service Collector. The collector then returns the collected data to the Control Compliance Suite infrastructure for further processing.

RMS consists of both required components and optional components. The optional components that you install depend on the data that you need to collect.

The following required components are always installed with RMS:

  • RMS Console

  • Information Server

The RMS Console and the Information Server provide required infrastructure components for RMS snap-in modules. In addition, the Console and the Information Server let you configure the optional snap-in modules that perform the data collection.

Optional snap-in modules let the Symantec RMS data collector can collect data from the following sources:

  • Windows computers

  • UNIX computers

  • Microsoft SQL Server databases

  • Oracle databases

Some snap-in modules require additional components. These additional components distribute the data collection tasks among multiple computers to increase the data collection speed. The components are also used to perform certain configuration tasks.

If you install the Windows data collection snap-in, the following additional components are installed:

  • Enterprise Configuration Service (ECS)

  • Query Engines

  • Support Service

  • bv-Config utility

If you install the UNIX data collection snap-in, the bv-Config UNIX utility is installed.

Normally, the RMS Console and Information Server are installed on the same computer that hosts the DPS Collector. Any needed snap-in modules are also installed on the Information Server computer.
