Pega 7.3 Node classification - question on agent schedule creation

Assumptions: Cluster has three nodes. Node1, Node2 and Node3. Node1 and Node2 - classified as "Background Processing". Node3 - classified as "WebUser".

In my application, say, I created one AGENTS rule named "ReserveIt". It has two agents configured.

Agent1 - Associated to Node Type "Background Processing".

Agent2 - Associated to Node Type "WebUser".

How many agent schedule instances are created by Pega here? Is it created like in #1 or like in #2 below?

  1. Are those created by AGENTS rule + Node Types combination ? (Agent Schedule instances will NOT be created per Node in the cluster).
    1. ex: "ReserveIt.Background Processing" as one schedule instance, "ReserveIt.WebUser" as another schedule instance. i.e. as many schedule instances as there are node types selected in that AGENTS rule.
  2. The combination in #1 is created for all the nodes in the cluster? i.e. 3 nodes X 2 = 6 schedule instances in our example for the AGENTS rule "ReserveIt".

In attached screen shot, I see schedule instances as said in #1. Those schedule instances have a node name as well. So I was checking if those instances are created for every classified node?

If #2 is correct, then the no. of agent schedule instances created per AGENTS rule will be higher than in pre 7.3 releases. Not sure what is simplified.
