Just thought I let you know. If there are people who use CheckMK as their monitoring system, there's now a plugin available for monitoring the status of the Rudder agent. You can download it from the CheckMK Exchange:
Good day everyone,
I'm having some weird bahaviours on node upon upgrading them to our new rudder server.
Some of them won't run the agent automatically, and as such they show up as not running on the server.
rudder agent run is okay and reports not errors.
rudder agent health also reports OK.
This could be some weird cron related stuff, but I wanted to know if there's a known issue
rudder agent historyon the node, do you see that the agent is run every 5 minutes?
