Is there any way we can configure collector group name instead of any specific collector? because JVM's are not getting up if the configured collector is down.
So i was thinking rather than mapping to any specific collector lets map to collector group so atleast we can avoid this situation.
I am afraid, this is not configurable at the moment. For the very first connection, the collector has to be online. Then it is exchanging the collector peer list with the agent (within the first minutes of connection). Afterwards the agent can also "failover" to a different collector, which are specified in the collector group. But in order to retrieve this peer list, the configured collector at the agent level, has to be online in a first place.
