  1. Is this correct?

    pronet.apps.agentcontroller.ngpstastdbwriter.maxmsgcachelimit

    Seems like it should be:

    pronet.apps.agentcontroller.ngpstatsdbwriter.maxmsgcachelimit

    1. Hello Daniel,

      I double checked the pronet.conf file. It is not a typo in the documentation. The correct parameter is "pronet.apps.agentcontroller.ngpstastdbwriter.maxmsgcachelimit". Looks like a typo in the pronet.conf file itself!

      Thanks,

      Panna

  2. Can someone provide direction as to which pronet.conf file should be modified for any given parameter? Will the pw/custom/conf/pronet.conf ALWAYS override settings in the pw/pronto/pronet.conf file or are there some that do and some that don't?  There aren't any specifications above (tuning parameters for the BPPM server section) as to which file should be updated/changed.

    1. Hello Jon,

      You need to use the pw\custom\conf\pronet.conf file as it always overrides the settings in the pw\pronto\pronet.conf file.

      I have added a Note that clarifies the file to be used.

      1. Thank you Sanjay!  I had heard from multiple sources that some changes were done in the main file, some in custom/conf.  Good to know, thanks again!
