Dispatcher is a background process, which is responsible for routing requests from connected user processes to available shared server processes, and for returning the responses back to the appropriate user processes.

The dispatcher process, which is only utilized with shared server configuration, handles and directs multiple incoming network session requests to shared server processes. At least one dispatcher process has to be created for every communication protocol available on the server.

External Procedures

An external procedure, also sometimes referred to as an external routine, is a procedure stored in a dynamic link library (DLL) on Windows or shared library under UNIX. The external procedure is registered with the base language and then invoked to perform special-purpose processing.

Because external procedures run in a process separated from the database instance, using these procedures ensures that any problems on the client side do not adversely affect the database.

Foglight Agent Manager

The Foglight Agent Manager is a client application that manages Foglight agents installed on monitored hosts. It provides a centralized communications link between the Foglight Management Server and the agents. The Foglight Agent Manager also provides a number of support services such as the ability to deploy, upgrade, and configure agents.

For further details, see the Foglight Agent Manager Guide.
