Single OS agent vs Multiple OS agent for workload distribution

Discussion created by Tran-Hoang_Hau_348 on Dec 16, 2016
This question has been asked recently.

A large number of parallel Automic jobs are scheduled on a single server where a single Automic OS agent is installed. As all jobs are running in parallel, there is only single OS agent to handle all execution. 

Please suggest if another OS agent is also installed on same server and both agents are grouped together into 1 Agent group so that jobs are executed using either of the agent, will there be a performance improvement while scheduling task.

Does Automic recommends to install multiple agents on single server to handle heavy workload for an improved performance.  ?
=> If we don't have any problem with the resource of the machine then agent group is recommended for load dependent. even it's on single server.
