    Does flow.run() needs a local prefect agent ?

    If you want extra tools for running and monitoring many flows, you may find it useful to use Prefect Server or Prefect Cloud (which provide APIs and UIs). If you want to use those services, you'll need an agent. More here: https://docs.prefect.io/orchestration/
