    We have a Node JS Collector agent set up behind a Stingray, and unfortunately Wily displays the Stringray's hostname as the hostname for the Collector agent instead of the actual host's name.  I've tried these two methods (taken from java agent config) but they don't work.  Is there a way to do this with the Node JS collector agent?

     

    startup arg:
    -Dintroscope.agent.hostName=desired_hostname

     

    profile arg:
    introscope.agent.hostName=desired_hostname

    Make sure the following property you are using in the proper manner. 

    I verify we are using the same property and it is showing the desired hostname.

    "introscope.agent.hostName=desired_agentname"

     

    you can also try to change the agent name just of an experiment.

     

    both of these property should work in start up or in profile file.

     

    introscope.agent.agentName=desired_agentname
    introscope.agent.hostName=desired_agentname

     

    This is a sample of our jvm arguments to invoke the agent.

     

     "-javaagent:${WILY_HOME}/Agent.jar -Dcom.wily.introscope.agentProfile=${WILY_HOME}/core/config/IntroscopeAgent.profile -Dcom.wily.introscope.agent.agentName=desired_agentName -Dintroscope.agent.hostName=desired_hostName"
