Query DPA also

We use the DPA tool to monitor our sql server. I have sucessfully connected to and queried our Orion instance with the SWQL tool.   Although i do see a small number of DPA objects in the Orion server, it doesn't appear to be very many.

Do I need to connect to a different server to see all the DPA objects?     I know our DPA is running on a separate server,   if that means yes it does need to connect to that separate server, does that mean I have to ensure that SWIS is running on that server?
