Understanding Agent Statuses

The following table describes each agent status, and if and when you should take action based on the status. When an agent is in use, it has running status all or most of the time.

Agent Status Meaning
ONLINE The agent is configured properly and is available to use. The ONLINE status is the normal running status for an agent.
OFFLINE The agent's VM is turned off or the agent is in an unhealthy state. When the issue that caused the unhealthy state is resolved, the agent returns to ONLINE status.
