Agent-Bond Options

Agent bond itself can be influenced with the following environment variables:

  • AB_OFF : If set disables activation of agent-bond (i.e. echos an empty value). By default, agent-bond is enabled.
  • AB_ENABLED : Comma separated list of sub-agents enabled. Currently allowed values are jolokia and jmx_exporter. By default both are enabled.

Jolokia configuration

  • AB_JOLOKIA_CONFIG : If set uses this file (including path) as Jolokia JVM agent properties (as described in Jolokia's reference manual). By default this is /opt/jolokia/
  • AB_JOLOKIA_HOST : Host address to bind to (Default:
  • AB_JOLOKIA_PORT : Port to use (Default: 8778)
  • AB_JOLOKIA_USER : User for authentication. By default authentication is switched off.
  • AB_JOLOKIA_HTTPS : Switch on secure communication with https. By default self signed server certificates are generated if no serverCert configuration is given in AB_JOLOKIA_OPTS
  • AB_JOLOKIA_PASSWORD : Password for authentication. By default authentication is switched off.
  • AB_JOLOKIA_ID : Agent ID to use ($HOSTNAME by default, which is the container id)
  • AB_JOLOKIA_OPTS : Additional options to be appended to the agent opts. They should be given in the format "key=value,key=value,..."

Some options for integration in various environments:

  • AB_JOLOKIA_AUTH_OPENSHIFT : Switch on client authentication for OpenShift TLS communication. The value of this parameter can be a relative distinguished name which must be contained in a presented client certificate. Enabling this parameter will automatically switch Jolokia into https communication mode. The default CA cert is set to /var/run/secrets/

jmx_exporter configuration

  • AB_JMX_EXPORTER_OPTS : Configuration to use for jmx_exporter (in the format <port>:<path to config>)
  • AB_JMX_EXPORTER_PORT : Port to use for the JMX Exporter. Default: 9779
  • AB_JMX_EXPORTER_CONFIG : Path to configuration to use for jmx_exporter: Default: /opt/agent-bond/jmx_exporter_config.json
