Purge Agent runs as a service on Client machine. It will monitor for the start and end of Internet sessions and at the end of session it invokes its Purging Event. All the Cookies and Temporary Files downloaded and created during the session will be deleted during the purging phase.

Information about deleted files is stored in the purging log (in XML format) and sent to the server for the recording in the database. This information is sent using HTTP (HTTPS) protocol so as to work over firewalls and proxies.

Purging manager runs on the server machine. It listens for information sent by purging agents and insert purging reports into the database.

Purge Manager Web Reporting Module allows Administrators to view the Purge History through a browser interface.
