Cannot Start Machine Agent

Hi,

 

I'm trying to load a machine agent on CentOS machine with AppD Saas controller. When I launch the agent, it gives out an error - 

 

ERROR StatusLogger No log4j2 configuration file found. Using default configuration: logging only errors to the

console.

 

Looking into agent .zip package downloaded, there's no log4j2.xml file; just log4j.xml.

 

Any suggestions??

 

Thanks.

Re: Cannot Start Machine Agent

Hi Amol,

 

Thanks for posting the question on the Community.

 

I am sorry to say that this is a known bug for 4.5.x machine agent.

I will keep the progress information updated here in that case.

 

As the work around, could you try to add below option in machine agent command?

-Dappdynamics.agent.log4j2.disabled=true

 

If it does not work, could you try to use 4.4.X version machine agent?

 

Let me know if this helped you.

 

Many thanks,

Naoto


Thanks,

Re: Cannot Start Machine Agent

I have this problem as well. Passing "-Dappdynamics.agent.log4j2.disabled=true" through the command line doesn't seem to have any effect:

 

 $MACHINE_AGENT_HOME/jre/bin/java -jar $MACHINE_AGENT_HOME/machineagent.jar -Dappdynamics.agent.log4j2.disabled=true
Using Java Version [1.8.0_162] for Agent
Using Agent Version [Machine Agent v4.5.9.2096 GA compatible with 4.4.1.0 Build Date 2019-03-19 19:13:12]
[INFO] Agent logging directory set to: [/home/ec2-user/machine-agent]

ERROR StatusLogger No log4j2 configuration file found. Using default configuration: logging only errors to the console.

 

How does one get download verison 4.4 of the machine agent?
