At Intigua, the vAgent configuration is done separately from the vAgent deployment. This allows us to define a configuration once, and deploy it across multiple servers. In this document we'll describe how to:
- Create a configuration package for a vAgent
- Deploy that configuration package on your environment
- Work with vAgent after it's deployed
You can always find the full Intigua reference, at http://kc.intigua.com
Creating a configuration package
1. Click on the "Library" tab, and then click "Add Package":
2. Select the management tool you are configuring, and fill in the package name.
Once you select the management tool, a "vAgent Settings" tab will appear.
3. Click on the "vAgent Settings" tab.
4. Fill in the relevant settings.
5. Click save.
For the full reference, see: http://kc.intigua.com/2.6/#287.htm.
You now have the configuration package ready. On the next step, we will use this configuration and deploy it.
Note: Under the "Advanced Options..." do NOT change the "Intigua log level," unless requested by Intigua support.
Deploying a vAgentOnce we have a configuration package, we can deploy it to the servers. Deploying the configuration package will also deploy the vAgent if it is not available. if it is present, only the new configuration will be deployed, and the vAgent will be restarted so it can use the new configuration settings.
To deploy a configuration package, please follow the steps below:
1. Select the servers that you would like to deploy on.
2. Click on "Server Actions," and then "Apply / Remove vAgents."
3. Click on the checkbox next to the vAgents you would like to apply.
4. Select the configuration package, and click apply.
Only checked vAgents will be applied. Do not unchecked existing vAgents -- unchecked vAgents will be removed.
Working with vAgents
View vAgent files
To view files on a deployed vAgent from the Intigua console:
1. Click on the relevant server.
2. Click "view files" for the relevant vAgent.
3. In the file explorer dialog, navigate to the file you’d like to view, and then click 'View' or 'Download' next to the specific file you’d like to see.
Note: when click 'View' Make sure that pop-ups are allowed on the browser.
To view Intigua logs related to the agent (i.e., if the agent was throttled or restarted due to exceeding the allowed memory amount) click on the "Logs" tab.
vAgent was restarted due to reaching its memory capacity defined in the configuration package:
CPU throttling was engaged (click on the magnifying glass to read more details):
Stop \ Start the vAgent
To manually stop or start the vAgent, click on the relevant server, and then click "Stop" (or "Start", if it's already stopped) next to the relevant agent.
A stopped vAgent appears with a red stop overlay icon:
