Remove Monitoring Agents from Ops Manager¶
View Active Agents¶
To view your active Monitoring Agents, click Deployment, then the Agents tab, then All Agents.
Active agents are those that have pinged Ops Manager in the last 5 minutes.
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).
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 OSX 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.
