About the SVM selection algorithms
January 10, 2024
Light Agents can apply one of the following SVM selection algorithms for connection:
If you use the application under an enterprise license, you can specify the SVM selection algorithm to be used by the Light Agents, and configure advanced SVM selection settings.
If you use the application under a standard license, Light Agents use the standard SVM selection algorithm to select SVMs for connection.
Regardless of the algorithm used in selecting SVMs, Light Agents also take into account the following parameters:
- Availability of a valid license (the SVM possesses a license key that is not in the denylist, and the license associated with the key has not expired). Light Agent first connects to the SVM on which the solution is activated (possess a key).
- Type of the license key added to the SVM. If you add a server or desktop key to the SVM, the Light Agent first connects to the SVM on which the key type corresponds to the operating system installed on the virtual machine with Light Agent.
- Encrypting the connection between a Light Agent and SVM. A Light Agent for which connection encryption is enabled can connect only to SVMs on which connection encryption is also enabled. A Light Agent for which connection encryption is disabled can connect only to SVMs on which connection encryption is also disabled or protection is enabled, but a non-secure connection is allowed.
- Tags for connecting to the SVM (only if you use application under an enterprise license). If a Light Agent has been assigned a tag, this Light Agent can connect only to SVMs for which connection of Light Agents with the specified tag is allowed.
