The Monitoring Client will update within 24 hours of a new release. The Monitoring Client can become out-of-date when auto-update has been disabled, or a failure occurs in the auto-update process. There are several methods for handling out-of-date Monitoring Client.
Reinstalling the same, or newer, Monitoring Client over an existing installation is a safe action, even when changing the subdomain of the installed agent.
The Mac Monitoring Client can be forced to try a Manual Update.
Download the latest Mac Monitoring Client Installer.
Installing the latest Mac Monitoring Client updates the software while retaining current settings.
To force update to the latest version:
sudo run-client -F --update
Enable autoupdates using:
sudo run-client --auto-update true
