About platform-specific identification

Previous Next


The Agent Manager determines a unique ID for each system on which it runs, and includes that ID with the data submission from each agent. On some Linux® systems, however, the Agent Manager may be unable to determine a unique system ID. In such cases, the Agent Manager does not return any system ID in the data submission.
