The command allows you to interact with an HP Application Discovery
agent to start or stop its operation, to change its mode of operation,
to collect information about it, and to change its data collection fre‐
quency on the system where it resides. You will need root access to
use this command.
You can also execute from the HP SIM graphical user interface by fol‐
lowing the Configure > Configure VSE Agents menus to HP Application
Discovery options such as "Start AD Agents" or "Stop AD Agents".
If no options are specified, the agent will start as a daemon with com‐
munication type of WBEM, as these are the command defaults. The agent
will then look for configuration options in a file
/var/opt/amgr/agent.properties and run. If /var/opt/amgr/agent.proper‐
ties does not exist or does not contain a server.name property, then
the agent will run, but it will not know the location of the CMS to
which it should send data.
The command recognizes the following options.
-config f Use configuration file f instead of default file.
Set configuration check frequency to a number t, with
s for seconds, m for minutes, or h for hours.
