The ICM Desktop Agent's Main Procedure:

  1. Try to connect to the Aggregator. If it's the first time running, it should register a new account and download a token and a pair of public/private key.
  2. If cannot connect to the Aggregator, connect to the Super Agents. The addresses of the Super Agents can be fetched from somewhere on the internet or from its local file.
  3. Authenticate with the Aggregator or the Super Agents it has connected.
  4. Get super peer list from the Aggregator or the Super Agents. Connect to them.
  5. Get normal peer list from the Aggregator or the Super Agents. Connect to them.
  6. Waiting for the Aggregator or the Super Agents to assign testing tasks. Or perform a regular test suite.
  7. Generate test reports, send the reports to the Aggregator. If failed, send them to one or two Super Agents. If all Super Agents are not available, send them to all its neighbours (normal agents). The reports will be routing to the aggregator. And a de-duplication of reports will be done on both Super Agent and the Aggregator.

Also, the Desktop Agent accept RPC request from the Aggregator and the Super Agents.
