Solarwinds agent polling performance vs. traditional WMI / SNMP polling differences?


May I know what's if using Solarwinds Orion Polling as opposed to using Agent is faster and lighter ?
eg. does not consume much resource on the server side?


Because I'm currently cutting over to not using Solarwinds agent anymore due to the remote agent restart requirement after upgrading Orion Platform, but using the Polling method.

Is there any benefits when using agent instead of the normal polling?


Port use by each methods:

5x ports SW agent:
17x ports SAM Polling:
