This parameter is used to copy pmgreader to the remote host. This parameter also checks whether the pmgreader process is running on the remote host, and if the binary file is valid. If an invalid pmgreader binary file is found or if pmgreader has not been copied to the remote host, the KM copies the required binary file to it and any existing file gets overwritten. The pmgreader binary is located in the $HOME/BMCPatrol/ directory on the remote host. This folder is created by the KM.
This parameter is inactive by default. It becomes active when you configure a remote instance for the first time, or when a new remote instance is discovered for the first time. This parameter is available only for log monitoring on remote hosts.
Pmgreader cannot be copied to the remote host if it is already running, and a notification is displayed in this case.
