Dynatrace Keynote Synthetic agent software, both private and public, runs on Windows systems. As most Windows users know, it is recommended to reboot the systems periodically for optimum memory, caching, and system resource usage.
We recommend your private agent is also configured to reboot periodically (every 1-3 days). In the
agentconf.ini file on that system, there are the following settings in the
RebootCycle=1 RebootCycleCheckPeriod=3600 RebootCycleUnit=86400 RebootNtShutdownSystem=1
RebootCycle and the
RebootCycleUnit, then add
RebootCycleCheckPeriod to get the number of seconds between reboots. The settings above will cause a system reboot every 25 hours. The
RebootNtShutdownSystem setting is important to make sure the whole system reboots and not just the Common Agent software.
