How to create additional Eclipse Agents
Applies to: Eclipse
Version: Pre-2017.3.3

Eclipse Agents handle a number of distributed Eclipse functions, such as data imports through Eclipse Admin, index building, and keyword list building. Additional Agents can sometimes be added to improve performance with these tasks.

Note that beginning with Eclipse 2017.3.3 the Eclipse installer will automatically create additional Agents with unique names.
