Documentation / Standard Edition / User Guide / Agent / Daemons


Agent daemons (or under Windows services) are running in background and support the MyARM agent in delivering the measured ARM data to its final database:

daemon (or service) which collects transaction measurements from instrumented applications using flat files.
daemon (or service) which receives transaction measurements using TCP/IP sockets.

These agent daemons can be controlled by the myarmservcmd command. With this command they can be stopped or instructed to flush their caches to the configured database, etc.

Agent daemon as a Windows service

Under Windows it is possible to start an agent daemon as a Windows service. To support Windows services the following command line options are available:

installs the agent daemon as a Windows service.
uninstalls a previously installed the agent daemon.
runs the agent daemon as a Windows service. This option should not be used manually. It is used to start the service through the Windows service management interface.
