Installation Overview

HOTROD is deployed using a single executable, which runs both the Server and Agent components.

Each deployment consists of at least a single Server that can manage multiple Agents. Agents connect to the Server via a HTTP API.

As an option, the Server may start its own built-in Agent via the stand-alone mode. This is useful when handling light workloads and for testing purposes.

To summarise, a deployment consists of the following steps:

  1. Obtain the executable for your target platform.

  2. Install the executable.

  3. Configure and start the Server.

  4. There is an option to configure and start one or more Agents.
