Sensor Lifecycle Management

Configure Satellite Address (host:port information)

The Satellite address is configured in /etc/levo/sensor/config.yaml. The default host:port for Satellite is localhost:4317.

Edit /etc/levo/sensor/config.yaml, and set collector-endpoint (under Satellite Settings) to the desired host:port value.

# --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Satellite Settings:
# --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# host:port for the collector service receiving the sensor's API traces.
collector-endpoint: <set to desired host:port value>
# --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Sensor restart is required for this to take effect.
