At startup, a vRealize Hyperic agent loads all the plug-ins in the AgentHome/bundles/agent-x.y.z-nnnn/pdk/plugins directory. You can reduce the agent's memory footprint by configuring it to load only the plug-ins that you use.

You can either specify a list of plug-ins to exclude, or configure a list of plug-ins to load.

plugins.exclude

Use this property to specify the plug-ins that the vRealize Hyperic agent must not load at startup. This property is useful for reducing an agent's memory footprint.

You supply a comma-separated list of plugins to exclude. For example, plugins.exclude=jboss,apache,mysql.

plugins.include

Use this property to specify the plug-ins that the vRealize Hyperic agent must load at startup. This property is useful for reducing an agent's memory footprint.

You supply a comma-separated list of plugins to include. For example, plugins.include=weblogic,apache.
