Message Processors

In Apigee hybrid, the Message Processor (MP) is the workhorse that processes incoming API requests, executes policies, and proxies API requests to target services. To do its work, the MP interacts with the local, runtime Cassandra database and it has read-only access to the host file system, where it loads proxies, resources, target servers, and other required Edge entities at startup.
