Can I use my own name to classify a node using -DNodeType setting and configure my listener / agent / queue processor / job scheduler to run on this node type?
In other words, are the values used for -DNodeType are limited to Pega Standard values or we can define our own name to a node like -DNodeType=MyNode and use this value in the listener rule form so listener starts only on that node who has -DnodeType=MyNode?

@AdithyaK8896 - Yes custom node types should be acceptable. The only thing is it should have some specific purpose and you need to list the possible node types (as a master list for Node classification) in the JVM argument as highlighted in the article below.
@SuditSNG , So every node needs to have two settings,
-DapplicableNodeTypes=NodeTypeA, NodeTypeB, NodeTypeC : this should list all the node types including Pega defined types and our cusom types which we want to use in our cluster. I'm assuming we need to ensure this setting should've same values in every node.
-DNodeType = MyNode : this setting will have only nodes type of that node.
