Test Monitoring Agents on the command line

You can test the Server Pool Monitoring Agents on the command line.

The monitoring tool allows you to query the agents locally or remotely to check their status.


  1. On the command line, browse to the folder where the Monitoring Agent is installed.
  2. Run one of the following commands:
    • Linux: sgagentd -d test [file_name]
    • Windows: agent test [file_name]
    Where file_name is a configuration you want to test. Giving the file name is optional, but if you omit the file name, the test is run with the active configuration.
