This documentation applies to a beta version of uberAgent (docs for the latest official release)

Configuration Through Config File

Default Configuration

The content of the default configuration files that ship with uberAgent is available here.

Configuration File Location

Windows

A default configuration file uberAgent.conf is located in the installation directory, typically C:\Program Files\vast limits\uberAgent.

Configuration Optimized for Data Volume

To switch to the configuration optimized for data volume back up uberAgent.conf and rename uberAgent-data-volume-optimized.conf to uberAgent.conf.

Persisting Configuration Files in %ProgramData%

The agent installer completely removes the installation directory including any configuration files during uninstalls and upgrades.

To persist configuration files across agent upgrades place them in %ProgramData%\vast limits\uberAgent\Configuration. As explained here, configuration files in %ProgramData% take precedence over configuration files in the installation directory.

Please note that you need to manually update configuration files in %ProgramData% when rolling out new versions of the agent.

macOS

The default configuration file for uberAgent is copied to /Library/Application Support/uberAgent/uberAgent-default.conf. An additional copy of uberAgent-default.conf is created as uberAgent.conf, but only if that file does not exist already. The file uberAgent.conf is the one used to configure uberAgent, whereas uberAgent-default.conf serves as a reference and fallback.

Applying Configuration Changes

The agent reads the configuration upon startup of the uberAgent service/daemon. To apply configuration changes, restart the uberAgent service/daemon.
