Having NetXMS agents on monitored systems is recommended, but not required. If you only interested to now if particular host is alive or not (responds to ping) and/or that particular services (like ssh or http) are alive, you don't need agent on that host. But if you wish to get more information (like CPU usage or status of particular process) you will need an agent on monitored system (you may also use SNMP agent and collect data via SNMP).

Best regards,
