Configure RSA Authentication Manager Monitoring Intervals for Installed Agents

You can configure how often the RSA Authentication Manager primary instance checks log records for authentication records and information on the authentication agents that are installed in your deployment. By default, Authentication Manager collects this information every 12 hours. You change the interval as needed.

To see the information that Authentication Manager collects, you can run the List All Installed Agents report. This report provides details for each agent that has an Authentication Manager record, such as the hostname and IP address that each agent last used, and the time and date of the last authentication.

Before you begin

  • You must be an Operations Console administrator.
  • Obtain the rsaadmin operating system password for the primary instance.
  • Secure shell (SSH) must be enabled on the primary instance. For instructions, see Enable Secure Shell on the Appliance.


  1. On the primary instance, log on to the appliance using an SSH client.

  2. Change directories:

    cd /opt/rsa/am/utils

  3. Type the following command, and press ENTER:

    ./rsautil store -o admin -p password -a update_config ims.agent.monitor.update_interval time GLOBAL 503


    admin is the Operations Console administrator user name.

    password is the Operations Console administrator password. For security reasons, instead of entering your password on the command line, you can wait for the utility prompt you for it.

    time is an integer that determines the hourly interval at which Authentication Manager checks for agent records.

  4. Restart the RSA Runtime Server (biztier) on the primary instance:

    cd /opt/rsa/am/server

    ./rsaserv restart biztier nodep
