    ossim-agent is the process that takes in data and normalizes it to send to the server process. Detector plugins are standard data plugins meaning they are consuming log data, or query results from mssql or mysql, or sdee, etc. Monitor plugins are monitoring an actual process such as nmap. Honestly there is not much customization or configuration done with the monitor plugins. The detection plugins are where all the customization and configuration would happen.
