Goto Admin Studio>>Node Classification, you will see what agent needs to run on what node type OOTB.

when you get into a more complex HA cluster, it is not so clear what agents should be running on which nodes, certainly some are obvious, but not all.

If you are using NodeType's, and if you have Marketing in use, then this gets confusing very quickly.

IMHO, Pega should provide a clear document that outlines what Agents should be run on each type of node in the cluster, preferably combined with the detailed information of what each Agent does.  I know there are some doc's on PDN that describe 'some' of the Agents, but there is a need for a comprehensive guide to ALL the agents in use.

Also you can see few agents marked as Kernel agents, these agents should also run on all nodes.
