Can I install Multiple Agents on Same Network?


Recommended Posts

tubblog

Hi,

 

I'm setting Domotz up on a (home) network.

 

I have the Domotz Agent installed on a Windows 10 PC.

 

I also have a Synology DS-115 NAS on the same network.

 

I have two questions:-

 

  1. Will I cause any problems by installing the Domotz Agent on the Synology NAS to run concurrently alongside the Domotz Agent on the Windows PC?
  2. Will I gain any benefits from running two agents on the same network (redundancy?)

 

Thanks! :-)

Hi Tubblog,

 

thanks for posting your questions on the Community Forum.

 

Let me address both of your questions:

No side effects in having 2 Domotz Agents on the same network. Consider that in some of our labs, we have tens of Agents running concurrently on the same network

The two Domotz Agents will run separately (there is not yet a concept of "merging" data from two different Domotz Agents). Therefore, if one of the two Agents (or the machine hosting it) fails, you will have the second one which continues to allow you monitoring and managing your network from remote.

Super. Thanks for clarifying, @Giancarlo- I appreciate it!

JB Fowler explained to me that one potential downside to having two agents on the same network might be that latency tests get confused? What do you think?
