The dcm-agent is an open source python project for use with the Dell Cloud Manager (DCM). When installed inside of a virtual machine that is launched using DCM it gives DCM system level control over the VM instance and thus allows for the automated creation, monitoring, and control of sophisticated cloud applications. Some of the features that it provides are:
- Server health monitoring
- Automated software installation/configuration
- Adding/removing users
- Disk volume management
The internal workings of the dcm-agent and its interactions with DCM are outside of the scope of this document. However we will present some general information on how the agent works in order to assist in trouble shooting.
