2.0 ZENworks Services on a Linux Server

When it is running on a Linux server, the ZENworks Server includes the services listed in the following table. All services are always installed regardless of the ZENworks products (Configuration Management, Asset Management, Endpoint Security Management, and Patch Management) you have licensed and activated. If a service is not required for your product, it is disabled.

NOTE:At times, you might notice high memory utilization for certain services in the Primary Server and it might continue to remain high until garbage collection is executed. Garbage collection will automatically remove unused objects, thereby freeing up memory.
