Update Agents

To distribute the task of deploying components, domain settings, or agent programs and hotfixes to Security Agents, assign some Security Agents to act as Update Agents, or update sources for other Security Agents. This helps ensure that Security Agents receive updates in a timely manner without directing a significant amount of network traffic to the Apex One server.

If the network is segmented by location and the network link between segments experiences a heavy traffic load, assign at least one Update Agent on each location.


Security Agents assigned to update components from an Update Agent only receive updated components and settings from the Update Agent. All Security Agents still report their status back to the Apex One server.
