Configuring the agent with default settings

For a typical environment, use default settings to configure the agent. When default settings are used for the agent configuration, the agent does not run in the authentication mode.


  1. Run the following command:

    install_dir/bin/ config instance_name install_dir/samples/mongodb_silent_config.txt

    instance_name is the name that you specify for the unique application instance.
    install_dir is the installation directory of the MongoDB agent.

    The default installation directory is /opt/ibm/apm/agent.

  2. Run the following command to start the agent:

    install_dir/bin/ start instance_name

What to do next
