MI Listeners Overview

MI Listeners serve as routers between the Controller and a Performance Agent. They enable you to run Vusers over a firewall and to collect server monitor data and application diagnostics data over a firewall.

The MI Listener receives data from the Performance Agent at regular intervals. During the course of the test run, the Controller takes the data from the MI Listener to process as runtime data.

The MI Listeners are only available for load generators.

For detailed information about configuring Lab Management to work with firewalls, refer to the section about working with firewalls in the Micro Focus Performance Center Installation Guide.
