Synthetic Job Locations

For URL measurements and synthetic script jobs, the Synthetic Agent is always executed in isolation within a Docker container. This location is then mapped to the configured browser location. The synthetic script, however, is run on a different machine or location from the configured browser for security reasons. See Synthetic Agent Locations for more details.
