Have seen the term "super agent" a couple of times but don't know what it means. Someone has asked before but didn't get an answer. Also, the JIRA issue mentioned in the comment doesn't exist any more. My pure guess is that the super agent intercept all the signals and other normal agents will just listen to the super agent for signals. Is that right?

You're right. SuperAgent was intended to be a broker (maintains a cache) for notifications emitted by producers. As and when producers arrive, update and leave the network, SuperAgent would update its cache accordingly.

And as pointed out earlier and by Ry, this functionality has been removed as part of ASABASE-470. You can find additional information about the removal at the JIRA ticket.

The notion has been removed from the codebase.

Thank you for answering my question. I understand that it has been removed from the codebase. May I ask why it was removed? I am also curious about why the notion "super agent" was created at first.

Sorry, didn't realize there was a JIRA link embedded in your comment. I see now. Thank you.
