agent.conf Collector Settings

Overview

LogicMonitor Collectors have configuration files that can be used to control their behavior. The most robust of these configuration files is the agent.conf file. Data collection, Active Discovery, auto properties, event collection, and many other Collector-specific behavior settings are maintained by this configuration file.

The agent.conf file is located in the Collector’s installation directory. The default file path is:

  • Linux Collectors: /usr/local/logicmonitor/agent/conf
/agent.conf
  • Windows Collectors: C:\Program Files (x86)\LogicMonitor\Agent\conf\agent.conf

As discussed in Editing the Collector Config Files, it is highly recommended that any changes or additions to the agent.conf file be made via the LogicMonitor UI (from the Collectors page) as there are safeguards in place to prevent errors. Manually modifying this file from the local Collector is not recommended and is performed at your own risk.

There are more than 600 settings that can be configured in the agent.conf file, providing you with very granular control of your Collector’s behavior and operations. Some settings display in the file by default; some may need to be added if you’d like to override the default values that are defined in the code. All values declared in the agent.conf file supersede values defined in the code.

Note: In the majority of cases, your Collector will run as needed out of the box as long as it is appropriately sized. As a general rule, we recommend approaching the customization of agent.conf settings with caution and, ideally, at the direction of a support representative.

Settings are listed next, organized by function.

General Collector Settings

sse.collectorgroup.scheduler.taskqueue.maxsize Integer 10000 The maximum number of task allowed in the task queue in the SSE engine.
sse.collectorgroup.spawnpolicy.loadlevel.small.threshold Integer 200 The task count threshold that allows LogicMonitor to determine if a process is under small load (as compared to count running tasks).
sse.collectorgroup.trustallcerts.enable Boolean TRUE If TRUE, trust all certs in SSE. Affects HTTPS connections from Collector.
sse.restartOn.criticalClassNotFound Boolean FALSE If TRUE, SSE will restart if critical classes cannot be loaded.
sse.runtime.conf.path String ./../conf/service.conf conf path
sse.script.stopThread.useThreadStop Boolean FALSE If TRUE, the thread.stop method will be used to force stop the SSE script. This method is deprecated and may cause issues as a result of an inconsistent state. If FALSE, thread.interrupt is called, which may not not stop some threads.
collector.script.cache.timeout Integer 30 Expiration timeout (in minutes) for script cache data. Available in Collector versions 29.100 or higher.

Topology Mapping Settings

Name Type Default Details
eri.global.timeoutInSec Integer 300 ERI global task timeout (in seconds).

eri.queue.capacity Integer 5000 * 50 ERI task queue capacity.
eri.workers Integer 10 The number of threads available for processing ERI requests or tasks.
topology.global.timeoutInSec Integer 300 Topology task timeout (in seconds).
topology.history.maxItem Integer 1000 The maximum number of topology task history items stored in memory (cache).
topology.queue.capacity Integer 250000 Topology task queue capacity.
topology.workers Integer 10 The number of threads available for processing topology requests or tasks.

Watchdog Settings

Name Type Default Details
watchdog.check.agent.cant.start.interval.time.in.second Integer 240 The interval (in seconds) in which it will be reported that the Collector can’t restart.
watchdog.check.scheduled.task.enable Boolean FALSE If TRUE, the watchdog will schedule a task to detect whether the Collector is working.
watchdog.clean.dumperror.interval Integer 10 The interval (in minutes) in which the watchdog will check the dump error logs.
watchdog.clean.dumperror.patterns String sse_err_pid*.log,collector_err_pid*.log,hs_err_pid*.mdmp,hs_err_pid*.log,replay_pid*.log The watchdog will check the dump error logs using the pattern provided as the value for this setting (e.g. “hs_err_pidXXX.log”) and delete the oldest Java critical logs.
watchdog.credential.rotation.interval Integer 24 The interval (in hours) in which the publicly signed certificates that the Collector uses to authenticate itself to the LogicMonitor platform are rotated.
watchdog.credential.rotation.prohibition Integer 1 Prohibits credential rotation to be more frequent than duration (in hours) set. If set to 0, no prohibition.
watchdog.credential.rotation.testmode.in.second Integer 0 The credential rotation interval (in seconds) for test purposes.
watchdog.dump.sbproxy.memory.count Integer 1 The number of reserve memory dump files for sbwinproxy. Maximum allowed value is 5.
watchdog.dump.sbproxy.memory.enable Boolean FALSE If TRUE, sbwinproxy memory dump is enabled when heartbeat times out.
watchdog.dump.sbproxy.memory.wait.seconds Integer 30 The amount of time (in seconds) before dump to sbwinproxy memory is completed.
watchdog.feed.renew.interval.in.second Integer 10 Interval (in minutes) to see if feed from the server needs to be loaded to get the latest information.
watchdog.hang.ival Integer 600 The interval (in seconds) for checking if the watchdog’s main loop is hung.
watchdog.keep.alive.timeout.in.second Integer 60 The timeout period (in seconds) for reading the keep-alive response from the Collector.
watchdog.report.version.interval.in.second Integer 300 Interval (in sec) to report collector version.
watchdog.restart Integer 0 Restart watchdog interval (in hours). If set to 0, watchdog is never restarted.
watchdog.restart.blocked.collector.enable Boolean TRUE If TRUE, the watchdog is able to restart blocked Collector.
watchdog.status.port Integer 7213 The watchdog status listening port (i.e. the port over which the Collector service communicates to the Watchdog service).
watchdog.stop.then.start.agent.interval.seconds Integer 5 The delay time (in seconds) the Watchdog will wait to start Collector when restarting the Collector.
watchdog.wait.agent.start.time.inseconds Integer 45 The delay time (in seconds) after Collector start for watchdog to begin checking Collector.
