Agent Scopes are used to determine which agents use the CLM source rules. You can group your deployed Analytics Agents into scopes, then assign source rules to the scopes. While creating an agent scope, you are given an option to either choose agents from a static list or to add agents dynamically by specifying matching rules.
The Available Agents list is populated with the Analytics Agents reporting to your controller. You can use this list to add currently available agents to a scope.
You can specify match conditions where registered Analytics Agents that match the rule are automatically added to, or excluded from, the scope. Analytics Agents that register with your Controller in the future, with characteristics that match the scope criteria, will also be added to the scope.You can match on agent name, unique host ID, or IP address.
The available operators for the matching conditions include regular expressions (regex) and Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CIDR) notation. CIDR is a compact notation for an IP address and its associated routing prefix.
The match conditions are additive, so exclusions will take precedence over inclusions. An agent must satisfy all conditions to be included. For example, an agent named ABC would not be included in the scope if you specify something similar to the following conditions:
