Neutron L2 and L3 agents: How They Work and How Kilo Improves Them

In this session we will illustrate the work done during Kilo to improve the Neutron L2 and the L3 agents. We will start with a deep dive into both agents, explaining how they work. We will then give an overview of their deficiencies before Kilo and we will show how we tackled and solved them. We will describe future enhancements and performance gains that will be possible in future releases because of this debt repayment. We will also provide benchmark data to measure the improvement in terms of performance and scalability where applicable.
