The Machine Agent can register to the controller in 2 ways:

1. Machine Agent with Basic enabled (sim-enabled = False)

For this configuration, you have 2 choices:

  1. Let the Machine Agent create a dummy application. The Machine Agent can create a dummy application by passing the below flags in <MA-Home>/conf/controller-info.xml
    <application-name>NameOfApp</application-name>
    <tier-name>NameOfTier</tier-name>
    <node-name>NameOfNode</node-name>

    This will create a dummy application for you on the controller.

  2. Install a Machine Agent with the same <unique-host-id> as an Application agent (Java agent). This will correlate and have the Machine Agent report under the Application Tab.

2. Machine Agent with sim-enabled set to true.
