Extension Execution Controller custom configuration
The Extension Execution Controller (EEC) can be used standalone, out of the box. This topic explains how to modify your EEC.
Modify the EEC configuration
To modify the EEC configuration, edit the
extensionsuser.conf file, which is located at:
Restart the EEC service
After modifying the
extensionsuser.conf, you need to restart the EEC service:
To restart the EEC service on a Linux system, run the following commands:
- For systems with SystemV:
service extensionsmodule stop service extensionsmodule start
- For systems with systemd:
systemctl stop extensionsmodule systemctl start extensionsmodule
To restart the EEC service on a Windows system, either start Task Manager and restart the
Dynatrace Extensions Controller service or run the following commands:
net stop "Dynatrace Extensions Controller" net start "Dynatrace Extensions Controller"
Change port used to communicate with ActiveGate
By default, the EEC sends data via port 9999, which is used by ActiveGate.
If you modify the port using the ActiveGate
custom.properties file, you also have to modify the port that's used by the EEC. To do so, edit the
extensionsuser.conf file to replace
PORT with the target port and then restart the EEC service.
The port needs to be configured for the ActiveGate plugin module and the EEC.
