6.11. Managing the Agent JVM

6.11.1. Setting Options for the Agent JVM

The agent runs in a Java Virtual Machine, and aspects of its behavior can be defined in the file and passed to the JVM.
There are two arguments that set JVM options:
  • RHQ_AGENT_JAVA_OPTS resets the any of the default JVM settings.
  • RHQ_AGENT_ADDITIONAL_JAVA_OPTS adds JVM settings without changing any of the default settings.
For more information on JVM settings, see and other Sun JVM documentation.


Restart the agent after making changes to the JVM settings to load the new settings.
