I am trying to set up openstack environment in a LAB and am playing wanted to deploy BGP routing as part Mitaka release, as the configuration guide it says to change some configuration on Agent node, but i am confused as to what is Agent node, as per the installation for this release is concerned, it only talks about compute and controller node but not Agent node, is this a separate machine with SDN controller?

Agents can reside on hosts with or without other Networking service agents.

Many people run network nodes that are dedicated to network services like l3 routing, dhcp etc.

In the doc example, it is shown running on the controller node
