The heartbeat plugin assemblies will implement the process/code that will either obtain information for a given request or perform a specific action. They form the underlying implementation of the new Heartbeat model and will be installed on all client servers. All the plugins are dependent on the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) runtime/api exposed via the HeartbeatWCFServiceLibrary. This in turn is managed as a windows service.
