Agent Properties File and Log Files

By default, the JMX Agent properties file is named agent.properties. You can specify a different properties file on the command line when you launch the JMX Agent.

See Starting the JMX Agent for more information.

Agent Properties File

The Agent looks for the properties file in the following locations and sequence:
  1. A directory that you explicitly specify with the -dir argument when starting the Agent
  2. The current directory
  3. Your home directory (the default)
  4. The CLASSPATH

You can modify the values in the properties file via the HttpAdaptor or any supported JMX interface.

Agent Log File

By default, the Agent log file is named agent.log. You can specify a different log file as a command-line argument when you launch the JMX Agent.
