Need Info on-Best Practice on what agent configuration in multi host/muti node environment for Pega 7

Hi All

Here is the scenario. There are ~ 50 agents OOTB in pega 7.1.7/7.18. We multi node environment in production ( 64 jvms).  We want to know basic answers to questions like

Do we need to run this agent on all JVMs(ex: System pulse) or it can be enabled only on one or few nodes(Fr example: if it’s a maintenance agent for doing housekeeping at DB side, we don’t need it on all JVMs).

We were pointed by SR folks to links like which does not have specific info we are looking for.

For example : AgentBulkProcessing need not to run on every JVM , same with System cleaner.  Where as System Pulse could/should run on each JVM

We are looking for what is the pegasystems recommendation on how their OOTB agents should be setup  in multi node environment. Some documentation around it.

Any info is very much appreciated!!!
