2.4.4. Restarting the Agent and the JVM

The agent can be restarted without taking down the agent JVM process. It is also possible to restart both the agent and its JVM.
The agent is managed through a plug-in container managed by the JBoss ON server. The container loads and manages the lifecycle of all agents. Restarting the plug-in container restarts the agent and all its components without destroying the JVM.
  1. Select the Resources menu in the top navigation bar, and select the Servers menu item.
  2. Click the agent resource in the list.
  3. Click the Operations tab.
  4. Select and launch the Restart task.
Alternatively, both the agent and its JVM can be restarted (this can be useful if, for instance, the launcher script or the JVM options have been edited).
  1. Select the Resources menu in the top navigation bar, and select the Servers menu item.
  2. Click the agent resource in the list.
  3. Navigate to the launcher script child resource beneath the agent.
  4. Click the Operations tab for the launcher script resource.
  5. Select and launch the Restart task.
