-c –config Use alternate configuration yml file. -l –log Use alternate Log file for output. -t –test Test run. Do not run remote script. -v –verbose verbose log –stdout redirect output to stdout –debug run with dummy credentials for debug purposes


There are two levels of configuration representing in yml files. The global configuration ‘agent.yml’ is responsible of the agent framework and necessary params. The worker configuration, located at the workers folder is responsible of the specific workers parameters.
