Agent sometimes stops working
@EchoMin Agent was restarted on 2023-02-08 10:13:24.

@marcuscommunications Yes, that's one of the servers it would be communicating with.
Does the service show running on the PC that the agent is running on? And if so, can you still ping the above IP? The other won't respond.
On our end, we see; 2023-02-08 21:36:21 so it definitely has not communicated since then.
@EchoMin I can ping from that computer:

I have tried multiple computers on that network and they acted the same way with the agent so its definitely something on that local network. I just don't know how I would go about troubleshooting where the communication is getting broken.
Can you check the service on that PC so we can know if it's running. If it says it's running, you could look at your system app log and see if there is any error log. Then you could restart the service to see if that cures it.
It doesn't mean we found the problem but it's more info.
@OutagesIO_Support It was already running, have restarted the service, I expect it to work for the next 30 seconds

Also, are all the servers you're running the agent on the same version, like Win 10, 11 or a server version. I see 130067 is win 10.
The problem Agent 130067 is running on Windows Server 2019 Essentials
The below are working:
Agent 130066 is running on Windows Server 2019 Datacenter
Agent 130072 is running on Windows 10 Pro 21H2
Agent 130071 us running on Windows Server 2012R2
We have seen in some situations that the agent seems to be running fine then suddenly, part of the communications stops. It often seems to be something that allows ICMP for a while then blocks it at some point either in the network or with the provider or it could even be upstream.
It's been active for over 5 minutes now.
And now we see it Inactive. It it stays this way for 29+ minutes, it will then change to Disconnected status.
