What happens when collector offline more than 1 hour ?

Hi Expert,

I will ask a question about collector. I have a collector with windows server 2008 OS, but now the physical memory of this server is > 90%. The server team suggest to maintenance this server to patch the windows to decrease physical memory utilization, but patching is consume between 1 or 2 hours.

What happens when collector offline more than 1 hour ? Are the agents still connected when collector online again ?

Thanks,

Regards,

Nasrudin

Hello Muhammad,


I assume the agents will perform a re-connect when the collector becomes available again.

Hi @Christian W.,

So, there are no issues when collector offline for more than 1 hour and agent will connected normally ? same as situation before the collector was restarted (maintenance) ?

I think so, yes.

Maybe in worst case you will need to restart the agent.

Another option is to install a second collector and make both collectors part of the same collector group. Then you can take one offline and not loose any agent data. Once the first collector is back online, then you can remove the second collector and discard.
