It is good practice to upgrade your vRealize Hyperic components. New versions offer enhancements to existing functionality, performance, and so on.

Upgrading your existing vRealize Hyperic installation to the most recent version provides you with access to the latest features and enhancements. If you have been using a database other than vPostgreSQL, you must migrate it to continue access to its data.

You can upgrade the vRealize Hyperic agent by pushing it from an upgraded vRealize Hyperic server, by performing a manual upgrade that retains the configuration of the original agent.
