Smart Proxy Guide¶
Smart proxies are autonomous orcharhino components that may run on a separate host from the main orcharhino installation, interacting with it using the client-server model. The main orcharhino installation will always come bundled with integrated smart proxy functionality, such that this host can function as the sole smart proxy for most use cases.
Separate smart proxies are only needed in scenarios where orcharhino is being used to manage an IT infrastructure that spans across multiple networks. In such scenarios, orcharhino will require a smart proxy in every network with a compute resource provider other than the network that the main orcharhino server is in.
There is a fully-featured smart proxy installation guide to help you attach a smart proxy to orcharhino to manage hosts in additional networks. It also describes its feature set and usage scenario in more detail.
Other relevant documentation can found in the infrastructure menu section:
This usage guide is a stub. We are hoping to expand it into a full fledged usage guide in a future release of this documentation. In the meantime, we apologize for any inconvenience.
