    Harish,

    An agent is a small part of the Orchestrator Engine that you install on remote systems to allow parts of PAM processes to run on that particular server.    You can get a high level overview of all Process Automation components here:

    A simple example would be if you need to read, or write a file onto a specific, remote, server.  You could install an agent on that remote server to allow access to that local file system.
