Does Bamboo require agents on the remote servers?

Does Bamboo require agents on the remote servers?

We want to be able to use raw SSH commands without installing any agents on the target machines, does Bamboo support this functionality?

If you plan has some SSH commands then Bamboo need Java application called agent to run this command. There're few types of agents like local and remote. Local agent runs as part of Bamboo server inside same JVM. So if you have not busy instance you can execute plan at local agent which will connect to remote host and execute SSH commands configured in plan.

If you have busy Bamboo instance and want to distribute plan management from plan execution you need to run Remote agent at some host and Bamboo Server will send plans for execution to that host. Then Remote agent host will connect by SSH to host you want to run some commands. 

So generally speaking you're not required to host Remote agent at the same environment you want to execute SSH commands

You don't need to install any additional app in the remote server.

If you remote server it's available to accept SSH connections bamboo with default agent or remote agent can acces it.

Additional you can achieve this with script task o ssh task.

Is there any advantage/disadvantages for each approach?
