Server-enforced agent concurrency limits

I propose a feature whereby agents can be configured in the server UI to have concurrency limits. Currently, concurrency limits can be specified in processes for multiple-component deployments. It would be useful to be able to specify how many Component Processes can run on a given agent at any one time. This would tie in with the workload assessment for Pools when assigning an agent, but also force processes to become 'queued' waiting for an available slot for shared agents. This would also allow administrators to provide some protection for agents that are shared among various users - at present, agents will just keep processing new component requests until they run out of resources, but with configurable limits in place, this would also guarantee a minimum level of performance.

    As part of the review process, we strive to be transparent about our intentions with each enhancement suggestion. The offering team has carefully reviewed this idea and has decided that it does not fit into our current plans, or the idea has aged or has been implemented, so the idea will be closed. The idea will be kept in IBM's ideas repository and may still be voted on. It might be reassessed or reopened for additional feedback in the future. We value your feedback and thank you for allowing us the privilege of partnering with you in developing our products.

    Please check with latest IBM UrbanCode Deploy Version (7.3 at the time of writing) as enhancements in the loadbalancing of agents have been implemented. If this enhancement is still needed please re-open this or create a new request.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.
