The legacy Backup and Monitoring Agents can be removed after the MongoDB Agent has been installed.

To remove a Backup Agent from Ops Manager, stop the agent and then wait 24 hours.

Delete from the Server

To delete the Backup Agent from a Linux or macOS server, stop the agent and then remove the mongodb-mms-backup-agent file from the /usr/bin directory. If you installed the agent using a tar.gz file, the agent will be in the directory you chose during installation.

Remove Monitoring Agents from Ops Manager

Remove from Ops Manager

To remove a Monitoring Agent from Ops Manager, stop the agent and then wait 5 minutes.

When an agent fails to ping Ops Manager for 5 minutes, Ops Manager views the agent as inactive and distributes the agent’s assignments to other agents (if available).

Note

The All Agents page displays an inactive agent for 24 hours before Ops Manager removes it from the page.

Delete from the Server

To delete the Monitoring Agent from a Linux or macOS server, stop the agent and then remove the mongodb-mms-monitoring-agent file from the /usr/bin directory. If you installed the agent using a tar.gz file, the agent will be in the directory you chose during installation.

To delete the Monitoring Agent from a Windows server, stop the agent and then use the Windows program uninstaller to remove the MongoDB Monitoring Agent program.
