Because ZENworks Linux Management uses a web services model, all work is done on the server and not the client or managed device. Requests are made by the ZENworks Management Agent, using a web service. The server then processes the request and provides a response back to the agent. This results in a system that is not "chatty" and using up bandwidth within the network. This process is illustrated in Figure 2.2.
