Assets workflow offloader lets you enable multiple instances of Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) Assets to reduce the processing load on the primary (leader) instance. The processing load is distributed among the leader instance and the various offloader (worker) instances that you add to it. Distributing the processing load of assets increases the efficiency and speed with which AEM Assets processes assets. In addition, it helps allocate dedicated resources to process assets of a particular MIME type. For example, you can allocate a specific node in your topology to process InDesign assets only.
Use Configuration Manager to add the URL for the leader instance and the host names of offloader instances for connection requests on the leader instance.
Configure workflow launchers to use the DAM Update Asset Offloading workflow on the leader instance instead of the Dam Update Asset workflow.
