About non-HA deployments

Agent Managers that are assigned to an HA Partition can still manage deployments and agents that are not HA Aware. When these cartridges are deployed to an Agent Manager, they by-pass the HA Deployment Set checks and are only deployed to this host. If this host goes offline, any non-HA agents also become off-line.

Negotiating Agent Manager resources at runtime

Monitoring agents often have specific Agent Manager resource requirements. Some agents need more memory, others require larger queue sizes, or more lenient time-outs. The Agent Negotiation feature allows monitoring agents to request resource changes during deployment, activation, and runtime. During deployment, an agent package can request specific resource settings to applied as part of the deployment process. Depending on the current Agent Manager configuration, a restart may be required in order to apply the requested changes. This restart of the Agent Manager is automatic and is part of the deployment cycle.

Disabling runtime resource negotiation

Disabling runtime resource negotiation causes the Agent Manager to revert to running under its default startup configuration.

./fglam --disable-overrides
Edit the <FGLAM_STATE>/config/client.config file to include the following block of code:
disable.overrides = true;

Disabling agent-specific changes to the upstream queue

The config/fglam-config.xml file contains an attribute that allows you to disable any agent-specific changes to the upstream queue settings at runtime. By default this attribute is set to true. You can use this feature, for example, to prevent individual agents to negotiate allocating large amounts of memory.
