End Point Operations agents are used to gather operating system metrics to monitor availability of remote platforms and applications.

End Point Operations agents collected metrics are sent to the vRealize Operations Manager server. You can configure additional load balancer profile or dedicated load balancer to separate analytics traffic from EPOps traffic.

The steps to configure EPOps load balancer are described as required throughout this document.

You must shut down that the load balancer while upgrading or shutting down vRealize Operations Manager cluster. The load balancer should be restarted after the cluster is upgraded.

In the case of EPOps balancing, the overall latency between agent, load balancer, and cluster should be lower than 20 milliseconds. If the latency is higher, you must install a remote collector and direct the agents directly to it.
