Configure Plugin Loading

By default, at startup, a Hyperic Agent loads all of the plugins in its plugin directory - AgentHome/bundles/agent-x.y.z-nnnn/pdk/plugins.

You can reduce the agent's memory footprint by configuring it to load only the plugins you use. You can either specify a list of plugins to exclude, or configure a list of the plugins to load.

plugins.exclude

Description

Use this property to specify plugins that you do not wish the Hyperic Agent to load at startup. This is useful for reducing the agent's memory footprint.

Usage

Supply a comma-separated list of plugins to exclude, for example:

plugins.exclude=jboss,apache,mysql

plugins.include

Description

Use this property to specify plugins that you do wish the Hyperic Agent to load at startup. This is useful for reducing the agent's memory footprint.

Usage

Supply a comma-separated list of plugins to include, for example:

plugins.include=weblogic,apache
