Foglight Hybrid Cloud Manager 1.2 - User Guide (for Azure environments)

Editing agent properties

The Azure Performance Agents collect data from your Azure infrastructure and sends it to the Management Server. The agents keep track of resource utilization metrics and alerts you when certain pre-defined thresholds are reached.

Default versions of these properties are installed with Foglight. However, you can edit the default shareable and agent properties, configure agent properties that apply only to a specific agent instance, and create edited clones of shareable properties that are used by a subset of agents of a certain type.

To edit the Azure Performance Agent properties:
