Updating Monitoring Agents

The monitoring agents need to be updated when a new version of the target monitored system becomes available. 
First, make sure the application is run in developer mode in order to make the built-in agents editable. Then add the new version to the agent definition file in config/agents/<agent-id>/agent (see the highlighted entry in the file below).

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Alternatively you can use the Agent Installer tool ("Tools" > "Agent Installer...") to add the new version.

If the agent is based on providers, see "Upgrading provider based monitoring agents". Otherwise see "Upgrading non-provider based monitoring agents". If your agent is based both on providers and on code, apply the recommendations from both documents.
