Configure Service Virtualization agents

Service Virtualization agents handle communication between a client and a real or virtual service. Agents are protocol specific. You must configure agents for each protocol your services are using, on each Service Virtualization Server or the Designer's embedded server on which the services are deployed.

You can manage agents using both the Designer, and Service Virtualization Management.

In the Designer: Manage agents in the Agents page. For user-interface details, see Agents Page.

Note: For details on managing agents in Service Virtualization Management, see the Service Virtualization Management help within the application.
