New Feature to help determine if a server should be considered “Local” or “Remote

Feature is located in Screen G1 (License Manager), Right click to bring up the menu:

After the scan, Argent updates the server’s node properties in SQL with the correct hop count which can be used to create Monitoring Groups based on the hop count i.e.:

Remote servers having HOPS greater than 2:

Local or HQ Servers having HOPS less than 2:

The above examples helps when performance becomes an issue and separation of Monitoring Groups is essential to help distribute monitoring load based on server location
