Thanks for your response. However the page shows all about how to control/configure/find the EM/Agent logfiles.
The flood control exceeded messages occur when a the agent is retrieving more than a certain number of rows for a metric. I am looking to find out what those numbers are currently set to, and if I can configure them. So these flood control levels control how many rows the agent can retrieve for a metric before resulting in a warning (min level) or an error (max level).
PS There should be a global agent parameter, but I cannot find any further information on its name or where/how to find and set that parameter. I looked in $AGENT_INST/sysman/config but it doesn't seem to be there?
