MetaTester and Remote Agents
Local agents are created automatically in the computer where the client terminal is installed. The number of local agents is equal to the number of the logical cores of the processor.
A remote agent is a specialized service installed on a computer and used for testing and optimizing Expert Advisors in the strategy tester. The unlimited number of such agents can be connected to a terminal. This considerably speeds up optimization, because each run is performed as a separate process on a separate agent. How to connect remote agents to the strategy tester is described in a separate section.
Remote agents are installed as separate services in the operating system using the special application "metatester.exe" located in the terminal installation folder.
