How do I clear running AppManager jobs in the UNIX Agent?
You can clear all running jobs and cached data from the UNIX agent by performing a cold or frozen start.


  1. Stop the agent service by executing the nqmdaemon stop command. This utility is usually in the /etc/init.d/ directory, so you will probably enter:

    /etc/init.d/nqmdaemon stop
  2. Edit the initalization script and locate the NIQ_AGENT_STARTUP_OPTIONS_ADDITION variable.

  3. Add one of the following options to NIQ_AGENT_STARTUP_OPTIONS_ADDITION

    1. -C     Restart the UNIX agent using the NqmCfg.xml or NqmCfg_#.xml configuration file stored in the local repository. Restarting the agent with this option preserves modifications you have made to the configuration file and information about running jobs. This option is the equivalent to restarting the Windows agent with the -o option.

    2. -F     Cold start the agent using the default configuration file created when you installed the agent. If you start the agent with this option, no information about modifications to the configuration file is preserved, nor are any running jobs, events, or data retained. This is equivalent to restarting the Windows agent using the -oa flag.

  4. Restart the agent service by executing the nqmdaemon start command. If you used the default installation, enter:

    /etc/init.d/nqmdaemon start
