Can an application agent node belong to more than one tier?


Hi Ryan,


is it true that 

  • An application agent node cannot belong to more than one tier

We have same server(node) reporting to different tiers also, around 4 nodes are mapped to different Tier and each node is contributing to the calls in different BT, hence even if have only 37 agents we see around 100+ app agent servers in the AppDynamics agents window from settings, so we are confused a bit how this is happening.

Can you explain a bit more
