    This page describes Controller Admin settings that are specific to the Standalone Machine Agent. You need the root user password to change these settings.

    You can change the amount of Machine Agent data you retain in the Controller database by changing the retention period for Machine Agent snapshots. Lowering the retention settings purges data that is aged out by the new retention setting and reduces the amount of data stored by the Controller on an ongoing basis. Consider the amount of Machine Agent data to retain when tuning the size of the Controller database.

    Change the Controller Settings for Standalone Machine Agents

    1. Log in to the Controller administration console using the root user password. See Access the Administration Console.

      Use the root user password to access the Admin console when the Controller is installed in single- or multi-tenant mode. See User Management

    2. Select Controller Settings.
    3. Change the settings as needed, and then select Save
      Changes to the settings occur the next time you restart the Agent and it connects to the Controller.
