Setting Agent Filter Options
Access the Agent Filters page (PeopleTools, Performance Monitor, Administration, Agent Filters).
Agent filters determine the amount of performance data that is generated and sent to the monitoring system. Depending on the situation, different levels of performance data may be needed to assist in your performance-related decisions. The levels range from no information to extremely detailed information.
Each type of PMU and event is associated with a filter level, which is the lowest level at which the system generates performance data for that PMU or event.
Field or Control

The Filter Level column contains a drop-down list box for setting the filtering level. You have the following options:
|Save and Notify Agents||
Notifies the PPMI servlet of configuration changes that are made on this page. First, the system saves the changes to the database. Notification occurs through the PeopleSoft Integration Broker gateway. The monitor servlet notifies the agents of changes when the agents next communicate with the monitor. A delay occurs in publishing changes to the monitored systems. The maximum delay is the agent heartbeat interval.
