Java Agent - setting agentManager.url.1 on JVM

Jump to Best Answer
  • 1.  Java Agent - setting agentManager.url.1 on JVM

    Posted 09-29-2017 03:27 PM

    We are installing 10.5.2 and we had version 10.0.  In 10.0 we had to have an agent configuration for each of our environments, which made things a bit harder to manage.


    One of the big differences is that the agentManager.url.1 was one of there MOMs.  


    Is there a way to set the agentManager.url.1 on the JVM arguments:


             -d agentManager.url.1=<momhostname>:5001


    And comment out the agentManager.url.1=localhost:5001 in the profile?


    That way we could have a single agent configuration for all of our application servers and not a custom one per Production/qa/stress/test/dev.


    Thank you,

    Hi Billy,

    Yes, you can use -DagentManager.url.1 as a jvm argument and comment agentManager.url.1 in the agent profile


    Additional reminders:

    a) you can simplify it more: -DagentManager=URL is equivalent to -DagentManager.url.1=URL


    b) you add add multiple EM connections

    c) Supported protocols:
    - agentManager.url.1=serverHostOrIP:Port to specify a direct Isengard TCP connection
    - agentManager.url.1=tcp://serverHostOrIP:Port to specify a direct Isengard TCP connection
    - agentManager.url.1=ssl://serverHostOrIP:Port to specify an Isengard SSL/TLS connection
    - agentManager.url.1=http://serverHostOrIP:Port to specify an Isengard HTTP connection
    - agentManager.url.1=https://serverHostOrIP:Port to specify an HTTPS connection

    If no protocol scheme supplied, assumes direct TCP Isengard connection

    You can use any of the above options as a jvm argument.

    I hope this helps,
