The RDF Agent is a piece of software that scours the BioMOBY universe for changes to service instances at locations that it knows about. If changes are found, then the agent attempts to update the registry’s description for that service. If services are missing, then the agent removes them; and if new services are found, then the agent registers them for you.
Usually this process is automated, although service providers can ask the agent to visit their service description locations.
