Farm Agent


Omniverse Farm Agent is responsible for executing a set of tasks based on the capabilities of the environment on which it runs.

Once launched, Agent queries Omniverse Queue for the tasks that have been submitted, and selects one for processing. For this reason, Agents depend on a Queue for the book-keeping of tasks, and for reporting progress information in a meaningful way. The documentation for Farm Queue contains additional details on how to get started.

During the execution of a task, it regularly reports its progress back to Queue, so that the entire fleet of Agents and tasks can be managed from a single location.


There are a variety of installation options available to install and deploy OV Farm. Information can be found in the Installation Guides.

Interface Overview when installed via the launcher:

After first installing Agent, the Launch button then allows you to launch it and start processing content.
