Notes

If NomadContentDownloadEnabled is set to true in the Agent's configuration file, this method will attempt to use Nomad if it is running. Nomad v6.1.100 or later is supported because of the need to download files as well as directories. It cannot use v6.0.100 because it can only download directories. Prior versions of Nomad are not supported at all.

If Nomad is not available or fails then the Agent falls back to its internal HTTP provider.
