About Agent life cycle

  • When an agent registers for the first time in Pro.Monitor, it has a PENDING state. It will not execute any task.
  • An administrator will then ACCEPT the agent via the dedicated button
  • Few seconds later, the agent will appear in the list of accepted agents
  • When an agent is ON with a status WORKING, it is ready to execute monitoring tasks.
  • Monitoring workload will be evenly distributed across agents, according to their associations (see agents groups).
  • You can temporarily deactivate an agent by selecting it and using ACTION menu to press Deactivate. No more tasks will be executed.
  • You can delete an accepted agent. It will go back in the list of pending agents, until switched off.
  • If an accepted agent stops to poll the primary server, it will be detected after few minutes. Its state will switch to OFFLINE and its current workload will be rescheduled on other available agents.

NOTE: When several agents share the same workload, it is recommended to use similar specs for their servers.
NOTE: In standalone mode, it is not necessary to assign groups to the local agent. But if you do so be aware that unassigned groups won't be monitored.
WARNING: If a group is not assigned to any agent, all its systems won't be monitored and a warning popup will be displayed
