Re: ovc and opcagt command

Hello.

With the HTTPS agent opcagt is mostly a wrapper for ovc command, with some other options. You can check what it does since it's a shell script.

Re: ovc and opcagt command

opcagt provides you status of only sub agents.

ovc provides more information inerms of the other process such as BBC.

ovc -verbose option will provide you information interms of what it does, when you issue ovc -start -verbose.

Re: ovc and opcagt command

opcagt -status will also show you if messages are buffering, I find that quite useful.

Re: ovc and opcagt command

Gennerally speeking opc commands are original (legacy) commands while ov commands are enahanced once.

opcagt is controlling services which category Agent ( opcagt equals ovc -status AGENT )

Opcagt has clearing buffer data feature (opcagt -cleanstart) "personnely I do not trust that this is working"

    Hello,

    the manuals should be part of the download bits. If not you can find them via the HPE software support page.

    Kind regards,

    I had gone through documentation but was unable to find out necessity of these two command.

    Can you please provide a link to a resource which could provide clear distinction and description of  these two commands?

     

    Kind Regards,

    Rup.

    Re: ovc and opcagt command

    Hello,

    the commands are mentioned in the Installation Guide. Besides that there is no other "description" that I am aware off.

    For sure you can also consult the help:

    • ovc -help
    • opcagt -help

    Kind regards,
    Harald

    Re: ovc and opcagt command

    Hello

    You can find the online help in the OMW Console itself. However it only gives you details about the classic 'opcagt' which is the legacy command to find the details about the classic OA agent.

    You cand find details about the 'ovc' command in the OA agent Reference Guide which actually gives you details about most of the command line utilities that come with OA agent.

    Hope this helps.
    Regards
    Ram

    Hello.

     

    In addition to what has already been written, on Unix systems there are man pages as well, so:

     

        man ovc opcagt
