Exporting or Importing a Monitoring Policy

The configexport command exports the monitoring policy to an XML file. A monitoring policy describes all customizations to rules, derived metrics, registry variables, agent settings and persistence policies. It is useful to export this information for technical analysis and modification purposes even though that data is not meant to be readable by end-users. The configexport command saves the current monitoring policy to an XML file given the file path and its name. If required, you can use the output file to re-import the monitoring policy at a later time using the configimport command

fglcmd connection_options -cmd util:configexport [-f file_path]

connection_options

Specifies the user name and password for the Foglight Management Server, as well as the machine name and port number, if necessary. Alternatively, fglcmd can retrieve this information from a user-specific properties file. For more information on how to specify connection options on the command line, see Logging In and Setting the Scope . For details on using a properties file, see Using a Properties File to Supply Connection Information .
