SQL Anywhere 11.0.1 » QAnywhere » Introduction to the QAnywhere agent

 

Starting the QAnywhere agent

You can run the Agent on the command line using command line options. At a minimum, you need to start the Agent with the following options:

  • Connection parameters   to connect to the client message store.

    In the Agent Configuration File Properties window, this is the information on the Message Store tab.

    In the qaagent command line, this is specified with the -c option.

    See -c option.

  • Client message store ID   to identify the client message store. The first time you run qaagent after you have initialized a client message store, you can optionally use this option to name the message store; if you do not, the device name is used by default. After that, you must use the -id option every time you start qaagent to specify a unique client message store ID.

    In the Agent Configuration File Properties window, this is specified on the General tab.

    In the qaagent command line, this is specified with the -id option.

    See -id option.

  • Network protocol and protocol options   to connect to the MobiLink server. This is required unless the MobiLink server is running on the same device as the QAnywhere agent and default communication parameters are used.

    In the Agent Configuration File Properties window, this is the server information on the Server tab.

    In the qaagent command line, this is the -x option.

    See -x option.

For a complete list of all QAnywhere Agent options, see qaagent utility.

Starting qaagent on Windows Mobile

On Windows Mobile, you might want to start the QAnywhere Agent in quiet mode by specifying the -qi option.

See -qi option.

Running multiple instances of QAnywhere Agent

You can run multiple instances of qaagent on a device. However, when you start a second instance:

  • The second instance of QAnywhere Agent must be started with a different database file.

  • You must specify a unique message store ID using the -id option.

    See -id option.
