Agent pool

Meet performance demand in AKS workloads by organizing Azure agents into agent pools
When you create agent pools to run Azure Kubernetes (AKS) workloads, you create groups of agents available to a pipeline. When you run the pipeline, the pipeline selects the agent that best meets the performance demands of that pipeline.
Agent pools can be autoscaled when the Enable Autoscaling option is selected in the DuploCloud Portal. Each agent pool contains nodes backed by virtual host machines.
Use the DuploCloud Portal Hosts page to create and edit Azure agent pools.
