Secure Agent services

Secure Agent services

Secure Agent services are pluggable microservices that the Secure Agent uses for data processing. For example, the Secure Agent uses the Data Integration Server to run data integration jobs and Process Server to run application integration and process orchestration jobs. Each Secure Agent service runs independently of the other services that run on the agent.
The independent services architecture provides the following benefits:
  • The Secure Agent does not restart when you add a connector or package.
  • Services are not impacted when another service restarts. For example, process orchestration jobs continue to run when the Data Integration Server restarts.
  • Downtime during upgrades is minimized. The upgrade process installs a new version of the Secure Agent, updates connector packages, and applies configuration changes for the Data Integration Server. To minimize downtime, the old agent remains available and continues to run data integration jobs during the upgrade. The new version of the Secure Agent runs jobs that start after the upgrade process completes.
The services that run on a Secure Agent vary based on your licenses and the
Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
that your organization uses.
The following table describes the services that can run on a Secure Agent and the
Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
that use them:

You might need to configure a service or change the service properties to optimize performance or if you are instructed to do so by Informatica Global Customer Support. You configure a Secure Agent service independently from other services that run on the agent.
