A Bamboo agent is a service that can run job builds. There are the following types of Bamboo agents:

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. 


To view agents that are currently active, see Using the Bamboo dashboard.
