Reverse proxy or load balancer for OneAgent
A reverse proxy/load balancer can be placed on the path from OneAgent to ActiveGate. You need to configure the URL of the load balancer on the ActiveGate so OneAgents can use that endpoint to connect to the ActiveGate.
There is no need to configure OneAgent to use a reverse proxy. OneAgent uses a list of communication endpoints that are embedded in the installer to connect to the environment. ActiveGate reports to OneAgent the URL that is used to configure OneAgent installation.
Configure during installation
On Linux systems, you can configure a reverse proxy or load balancer for OneAgent by specifying the installation parameters during ActiveGate installation. For details, see Customize ActiveGate installation on Linux.
Configure after installation
