Question:
How to disable the Agent Collector HTTP interface?

By default the Collector's interface is enabled. You can access it with a browser.
For security reasons, Sysload administrators may want to block the access to the Collector from a browser.

    Answer:
    Starting on version 5.80c and superior ( ask Support if needed Linux / AIX / Windows Agent kits) it's possible to block the HTTP access of the Sysload Agent collector by adding the following parameter in the agent's Collector configuration file:
     
    [General]
    DisableHttpRequest=1

    Once the parameter has been added, please restart the agent's Collector, from now on, the HTTP interface will no longer be enabled.
