   -c, --config=<filename>       Specifies an agent configuration preferences file (on filesystem or classpath)
   -d, --daemon                  Agent runs in daemon mode - will not read from stdin for commands

   -e, --console=<type>          Specifies the implementation to use when reading console input: jline, sigar, java

   -t, --nonative                Forces the agent to disable the native system, even if it is configured for it
   -u, --purgedata               Purges persistent inventory and other data files
