You can change the App Visibility portal settings, such as the host name of computer or port numbers, in the portal.properties file located in the following directory:

  • Windows
    installationDirectory\portal\properties
  • Linux
    installationDirectory/portal/properties

Note

After you change the portal.properties file, restart the portal service.

This topic presents the following procedures:

To access through a load balancing or reverse proxy server

By default, the App Visibility portal automatically and randomly assigns an App Visibility collector to an App Visibility agent. Load balancing servers control which App Visibility collector is assigned to a particular App Visibility agent, while a reverse proxy server adds a layer of security for the App Visibility server.

The collectors.load.balancer.address property value directs the App Visibility agent communication through the load balancing or reverse proxy server and forwards requests to the assigned App Visibility collectors.

Perform the following procedure to change the host name of the App Visibility portal to that of the load balancing server or reverse proxy server:

  1. Open the portal.properties file.
  2. Change the collectors.load.balancer.address value to the host name or IP address that you want the components to use when connecting to the portal.
  3. Restart the portal service.

To change the port numbers

  1. Set the App Visibility portal HTTPS listening port. The default port is 8100.

    tomcat.http.listening.port=8100
  2. Modify the App Visibility portal supportability port. The default port is 8101.

    tomcat.supportablity.port=8101
  3. Restart the App Visibility portal service.

To modify database settings

  1. If you need to change the database port, replace the port number (8800, by default) with the value you require.

    database.url=jdbc:postgresql\://localhost\:8800/avdb?currentSchema\=collector
  2. Modify the period of time to retain data in the database for App Visibility agents (retention.time).

    The retention time is in days.

    retention.time=35
  3. Modify the database size.

    The database size is in MB.

    db.max.size=102400
  4. Restart the App Visibility portal service.
