This section provides instructions for restartnig an agent or group of agents.


Navigate to the vCenter Hyperic agent or group of agents.


Click the Views tab.


Click Agent Commands.


Select the restart command.


Click Execute.

This command invokes the agent's Java Service Wrapper's restart command, which shuts down the JVM process in which the agent runs, waits for the process to terminate cleanly, and spawns a new JVM process for the agent. During the restart process, the agent's metric collection and resource control functionality will be interrupted.

The restart command happens asynchronously. To verify successful restart, navigate to the agent in the vCenter Hyperic user interface check its availability.
