We still call things "feeds". To me, feeds are a superset -
ANYTHING that are clients to Hawkular (shell scripts, python apps, cron

The Hawkular WildFly Agent is something that runs inside of Wildfly as an
extension subsystem. Its a type of feed. We could have called it Hawkular
WildFly Feed, but frankly, I think that would have made people look at it
crosseyed too. People know what a management agent is; "feed" not so much.
So, an agent is a type of feed - its a more fully featured hawkular feed.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :)
