Enable or disable a System Profile

Multiple System Profiles with similar Agent Mappings are confusing. In big deployment scenarios, pick meaningful names for all Agents and map them into clearly defined Agent Groups. It can be complicated, if you're copying-and-pasting System Profiles, or importing them.

You can disable System Profiles to find configuration problems easier. You can still view and edit disabled System Profile, but you can't use them for mapping Agents. If an Agent cannot be mapped to any active System Profile, it is connected but not instrumented.

Disabling skips the System Profile Agent Mapping evaluation for all incoming Agents. Additionally, any Scheduled Tasks or Monitors are not executed until the System Profile is activated again.

Note

Agents that are already mapped to a System Profile are not affected if the System Profile is disabled.
