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:

myarmfiled
daemon (or service) which collects transaction measurements from instrumented applications using flat files.
myarmtcpd
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:

--install
installs the agent daemon as a Windows service.
--uninstall
uninstalls a previously installed the agent daemon.
--run
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.
