This topic provides instructions on pushing a plugin to an agent or group of agents.

This operation allows you to transfer new, custom, updated, or patched plugins from the vCenter Hyperic server's ServerHome/hq-engine/hq-server/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/hq-plugins directory to the target agents' AgentHome/bundles/AgentBuildDir/pdk/plugins directory. Pushing a plugin to an agent results in an agent restart.
