If you want your KMs to continue collecting data even when no console is running, you must preload your KMs on the PATROL Agent. A preloaded KM is a KM that is loaded by the PATROL Agent at startup and runs as long as the PATROL Agent runs. To preload a KM, add it to the agent's preload list. You can update the preload list by using one of these methods:

  • Use the PATROL Configuration Manager to apply one of the predefined rulesets to the PATROL Agent
  • Using the wpconfig or xpconfig utility

Preloading using the wpconfig utility

You can use the wpconfig utility to preload KMs on the PATROL Agent. For information about the wpconfig ir xpconfig utility, see the PATROL Agent Reference Manual.

Before you begin

  • The PATROL Agent must be running.
  • The wpconfig utility must be installed on a computer that can access computers that are running the PATROL Agent over the network.
  • You must have permission to modify the configuration change file (.cfg ).
