    You configure Agent system properties in different ways based on your operating system and whether you are starting the Agent from the command line or as a service.

    Linux As a Service

    • SysV service launcher: 
      Specify the Agent system properties in the <machine_agent_home>/etc/sysconfig/appdynamics-machine-agent configuration file, and edit the JAVA_OPTS environment variable.
    • systemd: 
      Specify the Agent system properties in the <machine_agent_home>/etc/systemd/system/appdynamics-machine-agent.service file, and edit the JAVA_OPTS environment variable.

    Any UNIX-like System 

    When starting the Agent application on the command line for an UNIX-like system ((Linux, Solaris, Mac, AIX, and so on) using the machine-agent command, specify the agent system properties on the command line:

    • Run agent in the background: 
            % nohup <machine_agent_home>/bin/machine-agent -D<system_property1>=<value1> -D<system_property2>=<value2> ...  &
    • Run agent in the foreground: 
            % <machine_agent_home>/bin/machine-agent -D<system_property1>=<value1> -D<system_property2>=<value2> ...  


    When installing and starting a Windows service (you need admin privileges), specify AppDynamics-specific -D options on the command line or in controller-info.xml.
    Add other JVM properties on the command line:

    <machine_agent_home>\cscript InstallService.vbs InstallService.cmd <jvm_options>

    Mac OS X

    Start the Agent service using the <machine_agent_home>/ script and specify the Agent system properties on the command line:

         > sh <machine_agent_home>/ -D<system_property1>=<value1> -D<system_property2>=<value2> ... 

    When you run the <machine_agent_home>/ script, the <machine_agent_home>/com.appdynamics.machineagent.plist.template is updated with the installation directory and the java properties set for the Machine Agent.
