The "agent name" currently maps directly to the "hostname" attribute in
XML. This is something that can be updated via the API
Additionally, during auto-registeration
it's possible to setup a hostname of your choice by setting the
autoregister property *agent.auto.register.hostname*.
This property was specifically introduced to be able to identify multiple
agents on the same machine. I believe you were the one who opened the ticket
Are you suggesting that this behaviour is now broken?
