Node agent collection

Use this page to view information about node agents. Node agents are administrative agents that monitor application servers on a host system and route administrative requests to servers. A node agent is the running server that represents a node in a Network Deployment environment. To view this console page, click System administration > Node agents.

We must initially start a node agent outside the console. For information on how to initially start a node agent, see the addNode command and the startNode command.


Logical name for the node agent server.


Name for the node. The node name is unique within the cell.

A node name usually is identical to the host name for the computer. That is, a node usually corresponds to a physical computer system with a distinct IP host address.
