Agents related commands

The Administration dashboard shows a list of existing agent instances and a set of agent management commands at the top of the list. Use it to verify that your agents are collecting data from the monitored environment.

The following commands are available:

Add: Starts a workflow for creating new agent instances. For more information, see Creating an AWS Agent.
Refresh: Refreshes the list of agent instances and their states.
Activate: Activates one or more selected agent instances. Activating an agent instance starts the agent process on the machine on which the agent is installed.
Deactivate: Deactivates one or more selected agent instances. Deactivating an agent stops the agent process on the machine on which the agent is installed.
Start Data Collection: Starts the data collection for one or more selected agent instances. Starting an agent’s data collection causes the agent to begin monitoring the Hyper-V server and to send the collected metrics back to the Management Server.
Stop Data Collection: Stops the data collection for one or more selected agent instances. Stopping an agent’s data collection causes the agent to stop monitoring the Hyper-V server.
Edit Properties: Starts a workflow for editing the properties of one or more selected agent instances. Each agent comes with a set of properties that it uses to configure its correct running state. Editing agent properties .
Remove: Deletes the selected agent instance.
Update Agent: Updates the agent package to the latest version.

To perform any of the available commands, select one or more check boxes in the left-most column and click the appropriate button. For example, to start an agent’s data collection, select the check box in the agent row and click Start Data Collection.

Editing agent properties

AWS Agents collect data from your AWS infrastructure and send 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 agent properties, configure the agent properties that apply only to a specific agent instance, and create edited clones of shareable properties that are used by a subset of certain agent type.

To edit the AWS Performance Agent properties:
3
On the navigation panel, under Homes, click Cloud Manager.
Cloud Manager dashboard opens.
4
Click Administration.
The Administration dashboard opens.
6
In the Edit Properties dialog box, edit the following properties, as needed.
Account Alias: The display name of this account.
Collect Memory Metric: Select this option to enable the collection of instance memory metrics. The default value is disabled.
Collect Linux Volume Utilization: Select this option to enable the collection of Linux volume utilization. The default value is disabled.
Specify an agent name (Optional): Specify the name of agent.
Configure regions to be monitored (Optional): Select AWS regions for monitoring. All regions will be monitored if this field is not configured.
Select Virtual Machines to Monitor: Specify to monitor all virtual machines or only monitor specified instance.
If Monitor All is selected: By monitoring all virtual machines any virtual machine that is running in the monitored cloud will be monitored 24x7 consuming a monitored virtual machine license. Every virtual machine that is monitored will count against the purchased license pool. Any Monitored Virtual Machine that is above the purchased license limit will require an additional Foglight Hybrid Cloud Manager per Monitored Virtual Machine license.
If Monitor All is not selected: The following view appears on the bottom of the Selected IaaS Virtual Machines to Monitor dialog box.
If Automatically Monitor New Instances is selected, select instances that you do not want to monitor, and then click >> to move selected instances to the Removed from Monitoring table.
If Automatically Monitor New Instances is not selected, select instances that you want to monitor, and then click >> to move selected instances to the Virtual Machines Monitored by Foglight Hybrid Cloud Manager table.
If the Removed from Monitoring and Virtual Machines Monitored by Foglight Hybrid Cloud Manager tables are empty, and Automatically Monitor New Instances is not selected, the AWS agent will not collect any instance data.
