We want to filter by the hosts that are connecting to MOM; this is to limit the growing number of unplanned (and also unlicensed) connections, which may compromise the performance of the current APM infrastructure.
Release : 10.7.0
Component : APM Agents
You would use the agent-specifier. The format for the agent-specifier <host machine name>|<custom process name>|<agent name>.
Agent specifier regular expressions must include three elements of the agent path name: ||. For example, to include all agents from hosts serverA, serverB, serverC and not include serverD, you would specify inside loadbalancing.xml in MOM
You can also use regex in the agent-specifier as well. For example, if you want to only have ServerA123 and ServerA145 but not ServerA234 connect to a Collector, you would specify the hostname as below.
<agent host> - this is the hostname of the server that the agent is installed on
<custom process name> - this comes from the agent property introscope.agent.customProcessName in the agent profile
<agent name> - this comes from the agent property introscope.agent.agentName in the agent profile
