Environment variable equivalent for -Dappdynamics.agent.logs.dir system property?

Environment variable equivalent for -Dappdynamics.agent.logs.dir system property?

The 4.3 Java Agent docs list each configuration property with how to set them via:

- environment variable

- java system property

- XML config

 

Except there's a handful of properties which do not list any environment variable. Is that a documentation oversight or can these properties really not be set via environment variables? Examples include:

 

- -Dappdynamics.agent.logs.dir

- -Dappdynamics.agent.auto.node.prefix=<your_prefix>

 

Thanks,

Eric

I'm not following. That's the same document I linked. Many of the configuration properties specify an environment variable, but the log directory one does not.

 

See image below. The "Redirect Logfiles" option does not list an environment variable, while others like "Agent Runtime Directory" do
