Properties files for the data collector

Properties files that control data collector configuration and behavior are located under...

On Windows...

On Linux and UNIX systems.

For most common changes to this configuration, edit the data collector properties file and the Toolkit properties file.


The data collector properties file

Automatically created by the installer. Unique for every application server instance monitored by the data collector...

As this file is changed during upgrades, do not change this file.. Instead, add the settings to the data collector custom properties file...

This will override the values in the data collector properties file.

If file...

...does not exist, create it when you need to make changes. You may also need to create the custom directory.


The Toolkit properties file

Automatically created by the data collector at startup, using various input files. Unique for every application server instance monitored by the data collector...

Because this file is re-created at each data collector startup, do not make any changes to this file as they will be overwritten. Instead, add the settings to the data collector custom properties file...

This will override the values in the Toolkit properties file.

You may also set toolkit properties for all the application server instances monitored by this installation of the data collector. To do this, add the settings to the global toolkit custom properties file:...

If a property is set in the instance specific toolkit_custom.properties file, it will override the value in the global file for this instance.

If files...

...do not exist, create them when you need to make changes. You may also need to create the custom directory.
