After you install the BMC Synthetic Transaction Execution Adapter (TEA) Agent, it automatically starts as a service on the agent computer, but you can also run the agent as a process. You can run the TEA Agent as a process to support applications and technologies that require processes, such as for browser-driven scripts.

Before you begin

Before you run the TEA Agent as a process, ensure that the service is not running.

Log on to the TEA Agent computer as a user with administrator privileges.

To start the synthetic TEA Agent as a process

  1. On the TEA Agent computer, navigate to the installationDirectory\TEAAgent directory, for example, C:\Program Files (x86)\BMC Software\BMCTEAAgent\TEAAgent directory.
  2. Right-click the start_agent.bat file, and select Run as administrator.

A command prompt opens and displays the status of the TEA Agent.

To stop the synthetic TEA Agent process

To stop the TEA Agent process, do one of the following:

  • Stop the TEA Agent process from the Windows Task Manager on the host computer.
  • Press Ctrl+C to terminate the batch file in the command window.
