Table 5: Task throughput as a function of the number of machines evaluated in two cases. In a first scenario, no agents are allowed to run on the server hosting the database, resulting in a lower task throughput due to the network delays. In a second case, agents are given priority to clone on the database server and are exploiting the data locality.
