Whenever Deploy a policy, the system will check for a Property called Category assigned to the policy and it will try to find that category under %ovdatadir%\shared\Instrumentation\Categories  on the management server and deploy the related tools to that node.

Sample:

Database SPI policies has the category Database_Monitoring you can easily locate the attribute in the list view of the policies under the Policy Management Node in OMW Console or the Properties page of the policy

Once this policy is deploy the folder contents %ovdatadir%\shared\Instrumentation\Categories\Database_Discovery will be deployed to the node (you may have sub-folders if you want different files to be deployed based on the Operating System Types / Versions / OSbits)
