Question

Pega-DecisionEngine agents- Pega Marketing 7.3.1

As per the pega documentation, we have the list of below agents used by decision engine

https://community.pega.com/sites/default/files/help_v73/engine/agents/eng-decisionengine-agent-con.htm

I am not able to find the below agent in my agent management. Is the documentation got updated or not sure whether the agent namewas changed. Please let me know if my understanding is correct.

Update Adaptive Models

The Pega Platform keeps a local cache of scoring models. Scoring model updates are regularly retrieved from the adaptive data store. The model update frequency is implemented by periodically triggering the UpdateAdaptiveModels agent (Pega-DecisionEngine ruleset, PRPC:Administrators access group). The agent runs the pxUpdateModels activity to retrieve model updates.

By default, the agent is scheduled to run every 30 seconds. The agent only retrieves scoring models required for executing the strategy and the models that are different from those in the local cache. Configure model update frequency through the Services landing page.

Pega-DecisionEngine 1 ADMSnapshot Advanced Daily, weekdays only.

Please let me know if I am missing something

Hi Nizam,

Snapshot agent is disabled by default.

Kindly refer the section  "Configuring the Adaptive Decision Manager service"  in below help document to enable the agent

https://community.pega.com/sites/default/files/help_v73/procomhelpmain.htm#dsm/tasks/dsm-node-configuring-adm-service-tsk.htm%3FTocPath%3DDecision%2520Strategy%2520Manager%7CServices%7CAdaptive%2520Decision%2520Manager%2520service%7C_____1

 

  1. Edit agent schedule to modify the default agent schedule configuration of the Pega-DecisionEngine agents:

    • UpdateAdaptiveModels – Disabled by default
    • ProcessBatchJob – Disabled by default
    • ADMSnapshot – Disabled by default
    • InitializeDSMFeatureToggles – Enabled by default
    • StartDSMServices – Enabled by default
