Clients / Client Groups

Displays the list of clients or client groups that are included as proxies in the client.

The first proxy in the list acts as a coordinator. During a backup, the coordinator communicates with the available proxies and distributes the backups for virtual machines across proxies for load balancing. It also distributes required resources (such as streams) among the proxies.

If a client group is added in the list of proxies, the first client in the client group becomes the coordinator.
