Manually Setting the MOD Level for the ITCAMfAD DataCollector

Normally, you would change the MOD (Monitoring On Demand) level for the ITCAMfAD DC (also used as the DC for older versions of ITCAMfTrans) using the Managing Server. In some cases, however, you may not have a Managing Server, or you may not have access to it. In such cases, you can manually set the MOD level by editing the file:


On my machine, the full path is:


The default value of this file is a single line with the value 1, corresponding to MOD Level 1. To change this, open the file in a text editor and change the value to 2 or 3 (MOD Level 2 and 3, respectively).

One particular case where this is useful is if you don't have an ITCAMfAD MS and you want to capture JDBC calls for topology mapping in ITCAM for Transactions with TTAPI. The data collector will only collect this data in MOD levels 2 and 3, and the only way to set this without a Managing Server is by editing this file.
