Configuration Options

uberAgent is a flexible product that can be customized easily. Whether you want to change the metrics that are collected or modify the frequency at which data is logged, you can do so through editing the configuration.

Configuration Options

uberAgent can be configured by means of a configuration file (all platforms) or via Group Policy (Windows). After installing the agent you get a default configuration file. Optionally, that configuration file can be overridden via Group Policy. Alternative configurations optimized for data volume are available, too.


uberAgent looks for its configuration in the following locations.


  1. Group Policy
  2. ProgramData: %ProgramData%\vast limits\uberAgent\Configuration\uberAgent.conf
  3. Installation directory: typically C:\Program Files\vast limits\uberAgent\uberAgent.conf

The first configuration found is used exclusively. In other words: Group Policy overrides %ProgramData% which overrides the installation directory.


  1. /Library/Application Support/uberAgent/uberAgent.conf: this is the primary configuration file
  2. /Library/Application Support/uberAgent/uberAgent-default.conf: reference file that is placed here by the installer and used as fallback if no uberAgent.conf file can be found.

The first configuration found is used exclusively. In other words: uberAgent.conf overrides uberAgent-default.conf.
