I put below in both tomcat/bin/setenv.sh and tomcat/conf/tomcat.conf
export CATALINA_OPTS="$CATALINA_OPTS -javaagent:/home/centos/appagent/javaagent.jar"
as you see all users were given RW to /home/centos/appagent

any pointers would be helpful.
When you say "unable to get it to work", can you elaborate?
Does tomcat start?
Not sure what that means?
I folloed below instructions..
The zip was unzipped to /home/centos/appagent and add below line to /usr/share/tomcat/bin/setenv.sh file .. export CATALINA_OPTS="$CATALINA_OPTS -javaagent:/home/centos/appagent/javaagent.jar"
if you run "ps -ef" with your tomcat started, do you see the -javaagent option added to the tomcat JVM command string? Can you post what you see here?
If i use jvisualvm to monitor tomcat process I can see jvm arguments
Running ps -ef disclose only one process..
UID PID PPID TTY STIME COMMAND
abhiroop 128104 1 cons0 14:55:02 /usr/bin/ps
Still inside appagent\ver184.108.40.20622\logs nothing appearing none in Dashboard at
You have the command line option wrong...
You have typed -Djavaagent:C:/ABHIROOT/...
It shoud just be -javaagent:C:/ABHIROOT/...
Thanks for quick response as I'm in evaluation subscription.
SIr ; I'hv used all such permutations [below snapshot for reference] .
I have used yaml for daemon set creation to monitor my Paas servers and I can see some result at dashboard but once I'm dealing with agents to monitor my tomcat ( executing locally ) , nothing apprearing .
With the -javaagent option corrected, the next step is to look at the agent logs and see what is written in there.
Another trick is to run a simple smoke test: "java -javaagent:<path to agent> -version
If this prints the java version successfully, it will also have started the agent on your machine, which will have written some logs. These may also contain clues as to what is going on.
