Mechanic is a server agent for managing & configuring NGN gears, processes, and applications.
The NGN Mechanic is a server-side background process that manages NGN processes and applications (aka Gears). It acts like a server agent, capable of exposing information about a running process, creating global configuration attributes (like reusable datasources), and ultimately simplifying the maintenance of a process.
The service follows the "engine" metaphor. Mechanic will monitor the gears in your engine, fine tune it, and control it.
