  The Intelligent Agent provides the following core services:
  
  Event management capabilities for the host machine databases listeners concurrent managers forms servers Oracle HTTP listeners etc
  Job execution and scheduling capabilities on the host machine databases listeners concurrent managers forms servers Oracle HTTP listeners etc

   How does the Intelligent Agent do all that?
  
  The Intelligent Agent makes extensive use of an extended version of the TCL programming language All job and event scripts are written in TCL and have the ability to do anything TCL can do See the TCL document for details Data collection is performed by making calls to the operating system or by accessing data in a monitored database

   What are the major changes in the Agent with version i?
  
  The major changes and new features in the i Agent are:
  
  Data Gatherer (ODG) functionality has been fully integrated into the Intelligent Agent Thus the ODG is no longer a separate process
  A new control utility called agentctl has been introduced to start stop or check the status of the Agent
  Upon startup a single dbsnmp process is created on UNIX platforms
  Administrators can suspend jobs events and data collections on a target by using the Agents agentctl utility
  Intelligent Agent Release i is also redesigned to handle a large number of events at the same time
  A new watchdog script runs in the background that restarts the Agent if it goes down If the watchdog attempts to restart the Agent information is written to the dbsnmpnohup file (UNIX) and the Oracle<home>Agentnohup file (Windows NT/)
  For details on the i Intelligent Agent please refer to the Oracle Intelligent Agent Users Guide Release i which is available as part of the Oracle Enterprise Manager documentation set

   How do I start and stop my i Intelligent Agent?
  
  For the i Agent on UNIX a new Agent control utility called agentctl is used The relevant agentctl commands are:
  
  agentctl start agent
  agentctl stop agent
  agentctl status agent
  agentctl restart agent (to stop and start the Agent using a single command)
  
  On Windows NT you can start and stop the Intelligent Agent service from the start menu: Start = Settings = Control Panel = NT Control Panel = Services screen
  
  On Windows you can start and stop the Agent Services: Go to Start menu = Settings = Control Panel = Administrative Tools = Services Select the OracleAgent service Right mouse click and select (startstop etc) To modify the Startup Type right mouse click and select Properties and edit the Startup Type as needed

   What are the *q files that I see in my Agent directory?
  
  The q files are state files maintained by the Agent The files contain vital information about the jobs and events registered with the Agent as well as authorized users and OMSs that have communicated with the Agent The q files are encrypted and the hostname of the system is used as part of the encryption key The Agent reads these files each time the dbsnmp process is started If the files are missing the Agent will create new ones during startup The files are also updated each time a job / event is processed or a new request is received

  CERTIFICATION
   Is the Agent supported on a system running DHCP?
  Oracle does not recommend using DHCP as a method for obtaining and IP Address for systems running the Intelligent Agent Depending on the how your DCHP is configured you may be receiving a new IP Address each time the system is rebooted The Intelligent Agent needs a static IP Address in order to maintain communication with the Management Server You can setup DHCP such that the IP Address never expires for that system but you will not be able to launch the EM Reports WebSite if its running on the same system

   Does the Agent require DNS hostname resolution?
  
  The Intelligent Agent does require DNS resolution for communication with the Management Server The DNS resolution must also include an entry in the DNS reverse lookup tables (nslookup) This depth of resolution was introduced d
