Automatic Update of Smart Agent

Monitis releases periodically updates for Monitis Smart Agent (see Install Windows Agent and Install Linux Agent). To receive timely security patches and bug fixes for Monitis Agents running on your machines we recommend that you have automatic Agent update enabled in your Monitis account.

If automatic update of Monitis Agents is enabled, it will check whether a new version of Monitis Agent is available:

– Once in every 24 hours

– Every time the Agent is rerun after it has been stopped

If new version of Monitis Agent is available, automatic update will install it on your machine.

By default, automatic update for all Agents is enabled in your Monitis account.

To disable automatic update of your Monitis Agents, open the Options window by selecting Tools -> Options in your Monitis dashboard.

You can re-enable automatic updates for Monitis Agents at any time by opening the Options window and checking the box for Automatically update Monitis Smart Agent.
