IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version 7.1.0.1

Install application support on Linux and UNIX systems - WAS agent

Install application support files on every monitoring server, portal server, and portal client. After configuring the agent on the monitored host, enable Tivoli monitoring history collection. You do not need to install application support files if IBM Tivoli Monitoring is not used (in a deep dive diagnostics only installation).

You will need to stop the monitoring server, portal server, or portal client when installing the support files.
