AppServer agents
An AppServer agent is an OpenEdge session within the AppServer that executes ABL procedures on behalf of AppServer clients. The AppServer broker manages a pool of AppServer agents for an AppServer instance. Each AppServer agent in the pool runs an identical set of ABL procedures that share the same OpenEdge resources. The application services that an AppServer supports are really aliases for the same set of remote procedures supported by all AppServer agents in the pool.
When you configure AppServer agents, you specify a single set of properties that apply in common to all processes in the pool. For more information on configuring AppServer agents, see Configuring AppServer components.
