Is there a way to limit the number of agentparm.txt files that are preserved under a system agent install directory?  


Release : 11.5

Component : CA Workload Automation System Agent


The recommended solution is to set the following parameter in “agentparm.txt” file and restart the Agent Service:


Specifies a limit for the number of agentparm.txt backup files created by the agent. When the specified limit is reached, the number of backup files that exceed the limit are deleted, starting with the oldest. If you do not set this parameter, the agent retains its current behavior and saves all backup copies.

You will need to set the value of this parameter to 1 or greater, otherwise no backup copies are deleted.
