What's an agent?
An agent is any individual in the company who: owns an incident, fulfills a service request, defines SLAs, documents
problems, tracks and manages hardware devices, among many other related tasks.
What's a device?
You can use SolarWinds IT Asset Management to track any kind of asset, and the SolarWinds CMDB to manage configuration items. For example: computers, network devices, software, non-technical assets, and more. However, only devices that have an IP address incur a fee. Assets that do not have an IP address (such as furniture) could be imported and maintained through the Asset Management solution at no additional cost.
