Viewing Agent Definitions

Access the Agent Definitions page (PeopleTools, Performance Monitor, Administration, Agent Definitions).

Agent definitions enable you to view the details about the agents in monitored systems, and deactivate specific agents, if needed.

Field or Control


System ID

Identifies each monitored system. The PeopleSoft system automatically generates this value incrementally. System definitions are created automatically when the first agent of a monitored system registers with the monitoring system.

Database Name

The name of the PeopleSoft application database that is running on the monitored system. The monitoring system automatically inserts this value when it recognizes and creates a monitored system.

Agent ID

Uniquely identifies an agent within a system. This is automatically generated by the monitor the first time an agent registers with it.

Domain Name

The name of the domain (application server or web server) in which the agent operates.

Agent Type

Indicates the type of server process the agent is monitoring.

Domain Type

Indicates whether the domain is an application server, a web server, or a Process Scheduler server domain.

Domain Monitor

Displays as Yes orNo. IfYes, then this agent is responsible for sending resource events for its host or domain to the monitor at the specified sampling rate for the monitored system.

Server Instance

This number is specific to Tuxedo servers and corresponds to the Tuxedo instance number.

Domain Host/Port

The name or IP address of the server on which the domain resides, including the port number to which the domain listens for requests.

Note: Web server agents register with both the HTTP and the HTTPS ports. The application server agents register with the Jolt Server Listener (JSL) port. Process Schedulers do not have ports.

Domain Directory

The directory in which the domain is installed on the server.

Inactive Agent

If this box is selected, the agent is considered inactive. That is, the agent's events and PMUs do not appear in the Performance Monitor pages showing current information. You can still view information about events and PMUs that are sent by inactive agents using the pages that display historical information.
