Viewing a Bamboo agent's details
A Bamboo agent is a service that can run job builds. There are the following types of Bamboo agents:
local agents run as part of the Bamboo server.
- remote agents run on computers, other than the Bamboo server, that run the remote agent tool.
- elastic agents run in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).
Local agents run in the Bamboo server's process, i.e. in the same JVM as the server. Each remote agent runs in its own process, i.e. has its own JVM.
Each agent has a defined set of capabilities and can only run builds for jobs whose requirements match the agent's capabilities.
