Agitation helps produce evenly developed* exposures, and prevents over-processed, under-fixed negatives.
Constant Agitation = Fluid inversions and/or rotations, while changing direction.
Intermittent Agitation = 30 sec constant agitation, then 10 sec every min.
Minimal Agitation = 10 sec gentle agitation, then 5 sec every min.
*Bromide drag lines can occur if left to stand for any more than 1 minute. More on bromide drag here.
