Last updated on FEBRUARY 20, 2024

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Disabling the partner agent functionality is described here. This document helps in avoiding unwanted agent unreachable alerts being generated by partner agents in case of any network latency in the environment.

A partner agent is an agent that, in addition to its other functions, is assigned to another agent as its "partner" in order to remotely monitor the availability of that agent and its host.

A partner agent is typically in close network proximity, for example, in the same subnet, with the agent that it remotely monitors.

An agent can be a partner (remote monitor) of multiple agents.

An agent can only have one partner agent assigned to it.
