- Change the Managing Server that connects to the data collector
- Configure the data collector after changing the application server version
- Change the IP address of the data collector host computer
- Move the data collector to a different host computer
- Control Instrumentation of Application Classes for Memory Leak, Lock and L3 Method Analysis
- Set the Heap Dump scan interval and logging
- Define custom requests
- Disable various types of Byte Code Instrumentation for J2EE APIs
The data collector uses a technique called Byte Code Instrumentation (BCI) to collect data from various types of J2EE APIs that typically operate as nested requests. BCI is automatically enabled for these types of APIs. It can be disabled by adding lines to the custom_directory/toolkit_custom.properties file.
