Relays can be configured to support web agents exclusively.

You must upgrade relays for agents with web communication enabled and associate with the relay from the UI. However, a successful agent communication does not require any configuration. The following web communication parameters are defined in the relayInstallDir/conf/agentrelay.properties file:

The maximum number of agents that can be assigned to a relay is limited in each of the releases. See to the following table to check the number of agents that are allowed for a relay for your installed HCL Launch version.

In Linux, use the following utilities to reach the design limit of 10K concurrent agents:

  • sysctl:
    fs.file-max >= 40000
  • ulimit:
    nofile >= 40000
  • sysctl:
    net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range >= "10000 65000"
