Managing configuration variables
BMC Software recommends that you set and view PATROL Agent configuration variables by using the PATROL Agent Configuration utility or the PATROL Configuration Manager. PATROL Configuration Manager is more convenient because it includes an interface that allows you to create and deploy configurations to multiple PATROL Agents from a central location.
The PATROL Agent configuration variables created for any log file definition are created as a block of related configuration variables. Existing blocks must be kept intact. Improperly modifying existing blocks may prevent some functions from working properly and can affect your entire installation.
