Describing how OneAgents determine which AG to connect to, the page at the link below states that "If more than one such ActiveGate is available, OneAgents will try to switch between the available ActiveGates on a regular basis to achieve proper load balancing."
I had previously thought (assumed) that the OneAgents would be checking network latency to the AGs and would pick the one with lowest latency (within AGs of a specific type, such as Environment AG). Is that not the case, or are BOTH load and latency taken into consideration?
Solved! Go to Solution.
As I know this is only based on AG load, not latency. When we are making deployments, group of agents has access via network to only one AG. If there are some extra considerations here I would be happy to get such informations as well 🙂
I understand the hierarchy of preference between the Environment and Cluster AGs and of these over a direct connection to the cluster, but that view of closeness does not relate to the actual network distance.... so when we have multiple Environent AGs (as we do) the documentation does not appear to state that the one that is actually closest or has the least latency will be selected.
