There are four types of Enterprise Monitoring Points (EMPs): physical, virtual, container-based, and software. Physical monitoring points (models m* and r*) are hardware devices used for general monitoring, monitoring in wireless environments, and monitoring where high performance is required. Virtual monitoring points (models v*) are virtual machines that run in KVM or VMware virtual environments. They are used for general monitoring tasks, and are uniquely suited to virtual environments. Container-based Monitoring Points (CMPs) (models c*) are monitoring points that run in Docker containers. They can be run in environments that run Docker. Native Monitoring Points (NMPs) (models n*) are run as an application on various operating systems. They can only be used for Delivery monitoring.
