Cmd uses 4 major components: the agent, collector, database, and the Cmd app.


The Cmd web app is the main user interface. From here, users can monitor activity on their servers, configure rules to enforce their organization's policies, create actionable reports, and more.

The agent. Cmd has two agents, the Cmd Control agent or the Cmd Audit agent. (Cmd Free uses a restricted version of the Cmd Audit agent.) System administrators install agents on servers. The Cmd Control agent can enforce security policies, and both agents can monitor and send alerts about server activity.

The collector and database compile the data logs from your Cmd-enabled servers. The collector sends data to the database, where it is processed for display in the Cmd app, or for export to your long-term storage.
