I just installed dynatrace agent on my Windows 8 machine.
I want it to monitor Websphere Application Server 8.5 apps'.
The manual says:
how do I know what is the
name=<AgentName> and the
server=<dynatraceCollectorName, I just finished installing the agent but have no clue about these 2 params.
Do you have a server and collector(s) in place? The name will be chosen by you to match the system profile agent mappings that you have configured on the server and the server/collector name will be the name of the collector which you will point that agent at so that it can send its data back to the server.
I'd review the documentation on installation to ensure you have met the requirements prior to trying to install an agent:
For name=<AgentName> ---> you need to use valid application/JVM name. This AgentName should be same name which you need to use under agent mapping.
Question: Have you installed dynatrace server & agent on same machine?
If Yes then use server=localhost / server=127.0.0.1 (also make sure dynatrace collector service is running & you have created system profile, agent group & agent mapping)
No then create new collector server and use its IP address.
