Question:
Node.js agent names are appearing with "Agent" appended to it. Is it hardcoded or can it be changed?

"Agent" appended
 
Environment:
APM 10.7
Answer:
In order to remove "Agent" in the agent name please follow below steps:

- Go to Infrastructure agent installation and open the "config" folder  eg: C:\Infrastructure-Agent\apmia_1070\core\config
- Open IntroscopeAgent.profile
- Replace:

introscope.remoteagent.probe.agent.name = {program} Agent

with

introscope.remoteagent.probe.agent.name = {program}

- Basically with the above steps we are removing "Agent" part appended to the agent name.
- Restart the agent for the changes to take effect
