Defining the Agent installation layout
The Agent and extensions are distributed with a hierarchical layout, with a minimal set of required components provided in the default distribution referred to as a "bootstrap" distribution. This layout is referred to as the Default Layout.
Prior to version 8.0.00, the TMTM Agent and TMTM monitoring and configuration extensions for IBM WebSphere MQ were installed together in a single directory along with any extension packages that could be optionally installed. Referred to as the Flat Directory Layout, this option is useful when transferring files using FTP into a single directory.
You must select the layout to use and refer to the appropriate section (Installing the Default Layout or Installing the Flat Directory Layout). You can select to use a different layout for each agent. For example, you can keep the Flat Directory Layout when upgrading an older agent but use the Default Layout for newly installed agents.
