Upgrading Universal Agent

Universal Agent can only be upgraded manually. This is done using the exact same steps as for the initial installation:

  • Download the agent zip file from the download center and unzip to a convenient location on your server.
  • Run the installer in your terminal: sudo ./PlumbrAgentInstaller
  • The installer will confirm your server and cluster names, but the defaults are taken from your existing configuration, therefore it is not necessary to specify anything explicitly.
  • All new processes launched after this will start using the new agent version. To make sure they immediately use the new version, you can restart your monitored services.
