    Hi Praveen,

    Server Intelligence Agent is an independent windows service which you can generally see in Central Configuration Manager.

    You can also see this service in Start > Run > services.msc

    Basically when we start a Server Inteligence Agent, it will start the CMS first which will further connect to the CMS Database. The CMS will further acquire all the settings and the properties of the rest of the servers and hand it over to the SIA. The SIA will then start all the servers and will also monitor the services. Just in case any of the service which is running under this SIA fails, it will try to start it 5 times in 60 minutes.

    So the bottom line is that Server Intelligence Agent is not a part of a processing server group, however it will serve as a container under which all the BOBJ servers will run.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Praveen,

    Not sure I follow your question 100% so please clarify further, what exactly do you need to know?

    Can you provide some context.

    From an architecture perspective the BI4.0 or XI3.1 servers are described in the Admin Guide:

    The BI platform uses the terms server and service to refer to the two types of software running on a BI

    platform machine.

    A service is a server subsystem that performs a specific function. The service runs within the memory

    space of its server under the process id of the parent container (server). For example, the SAP

    BusinessObjects Web Intelligence Scheduling and Publishing Service is a subsystem that runs within

    the Adaptive Job Server.

    The term server is used to describe an operating system level process (on some systems, this is referred

    to as a daemon) hosting one or more services. For example, the Central Management Server (CMS)

    and Adaptive Processing Server are servers. A server runs under a specific operating system account

    and has its own PID.

    If this does not answer your query please expand.

    I hope this is a helpful answer to you.

    Kind regards,

    i dont think it is part of the bi platform servers. it is an OS program which monitors the bi platform servers and looks after them in a manner.
