Administrative agent settings

Configure the administrative agent and view its properties.

To view this page in the administrative agent console, click...

        System administration > Administrative agent.

Name Administrative agent server name. The name is read-only.

Node Name for the administrative agent node. The node name is unique within the cell. The node name is read-only.

By default, a node name is the hostname appended with Node01. For example, a node on a computer with the host name of MyComputer is named MyComputerNode01 by default.

However, the node name is a purely logical name for a group of servers. The node name does not have to contain the host name.

Start components as needed Select this property to have server components started as needed for applications that run on this server.

When not selected, all of the server components are started during the startup process. Therefore, selecting this property usually results in improved startup time because fewer components are started during the startup process.

If we are running other WebSphere products on top of this product, make sure that those other products support this functionality before selecting this property.

Process ID Read-only process ID of the administrative agent.

Cell name Read-only cell name of the administrative agent.

Node name Read-only node name of the administrative agent.
