Installation Location for Health Check

Given that the app needs other instances to be peers for it to do a health check of them, is it fair to conclude that the DMC instance is a good candidate of where to deploy/install this app? Any other places (indexers, SHs) this app needs to be installed to properly collect data?

Yes, toss it on the a host running the DMC since it has access to all the remote hosts, considering the DMC is setup correctly. The future release of the app requires it to be installed on the same host as the DMC as we use the assets.csv and splunk_search_group in our rest searches to filter results.
