Agent and Agent Controller Configuration Overview


When referring to file and directory locations in this document, <install-home> is the directory where the Agent Controller package was unzipped.


There are three configuration files used to manage the behavior of the Agent Controller and agents:


If the old agent controller interface is being used to start agents, the presence of an agent.xml has no effect.  With the old interface, the client must know the name of the process it wants to start, and those names are defined by application aliases.  An application alias must be placed in a pluginconfig.xml or in the serviceconfig.xml.  An application alias defined in an agent.xml will be ignored.
