Configuring the agent by responding to prompts
After installation of the JBoss agent, you must configure it before you start the agent. If the JBoss agent is installed on a local Linux® or UNIX® computer, you can follow these instructions to configure it interactively through command-line prompts.
About this task
Remember: If you are reconfiguring a configured agent instance, the value that is set in the last configuration is displayed for each setting. If you want to clear an existing value, press the space key when the setting is displayed.
Run the following command:
<install_dir>/bin/jboss-agent.sh config <instance_name>
Where <install_dir> is the path where the agent is installed and <instance_name> is the name that you want to give to the agent instance.
/opt/ibm/apm/agent/bin/jboss-agent.sh config example-inst01
Respond to the prompts to set configuration values for the agent. See Configuration Parameters for the JBoss agent for an explanation of each of the configuration parameters.
Run the following command to start the agent:
<install_dir>/bin/jboss-agent.sh start <instance_name>
Where <install_dir> is the path where the agent is installed and <instance_name> is the name of the agent instance.
/opt/ibm/apm/agent/bin/jboss-agent.sh start example-inst01
