I'd like to monitor a bunch of client servers using various types of external monitoring (mainly monitoring web servers but also checking if certain other services might be up and running and available - like DNS or FTP). I know this is done from a machine with an agent on it.

At one point, it was suggested that a separate machine be used.

But is there any real reason NOT to just do it from the KServer itself (assuming, of course, that it has an agent running on it)?
