RightAgent provides a foundation for running an agent on a server to interface in a secure fashion with other agents in the RightScale system. A RightAgent uses RabbitMQ as the message bus and the RightScale mapper as the routing node. Servers running a RightAgent establish a queue on startup for receiving packets routed to it via the mapper. The packets are structured to invoke services in the agent represented by actors and methods. The RightAgent may respond to these requests with a result packet that the mapper then routes to the originator.
