Short: it is a client/server structure ;)

One would - a setup _could_ consist of a couple of machine that do
monitoring; log their stuff to the gatherer (maybe a dedicated machine that
only does gathering of alerts) - the 'alerter' reads from a spool of alerts
to process, currently trough the filesystem. If one uses NFS or some other
network-based file sharing system, the 'alerter' can be run on a seperate
machine as well. My guess is that most of the time the gatherer and the
alerter run on the same machine.
