How to identify
The rows in the output report from the Pega Cloud Readiness Tool are:
Area: Asynchronous Processing
Rule Type: Rule-Agent-Queue
Details column: Leverage queue processors to replace standard agents for queue management and asynchronous processing
If the text in the Details Column is “Leverage job schedulers to replace advanced agents for recurring or scheduled tasks,” see the “Job Scheduler” section.
How to modernize
Use Queue Processors to manage asynchronous processing. This was previously done by standard agents, but Queue Processors provide more flexibility.
The new Queue Processor rules can be configured to enhance the performance of background processing. They can be configured to scale both horizontally (increasing the number of nodes executing the Queue Processor) and vertically (increasing the number of threads dedicated to run the Queue Processor on each node).

When switching from standard agents to Queue Processors on a Production environment, be sure that all the items queued for the standard agent are consumed before turning off the agent. For more information, see Replacing an agent with a queue processor rule for delayed messages
