Cloud agents are managed by our cloud platform which continuously updates
the agent status to give you visibility into the latest activity.
What does the status mean?
Provisioned - The agent successfully connected
to the cloud platform and registered itself. This happens one
time, after a user completed the steps to install the agent.
Agent Downloaded - A new agent version was
downloaded and the agent was upgraded as part of the auto-update
process. The agent does not need to reboot to upgrade itself.
Manifest Downloaded - Our service updated
the manifest assigned to this agent. This tells the agent what
metadata to collect from the host. The updated manifest was downloaded
and it is in effect for this agent. For non-Windows agents the
status column shows specific manifest download status, such as
Inventory Manifest Downloaded for inventory, and the following
status for scans:
VM Manifest Downloaded, PC Manifest Downloaded,
FIM Manifest Downloaded, or EDR Manifest Downloaded.
Configuration Downloaded - A user updated
the configuration profile assigned to this agent. This defines
agent behavior, i.e. how the agent will collect data from the
host. The updated profile was successfully downloaded and it is
in effect for this agent.
Inventory Scan Complete - The agent completed
host discovery, collected some host information and sent it to
the cloud platform. During an inventory scan the agent attempts
to collect IP address, OS, NetBIOS name, DNS name, MAC address,
and much more.
Scan Complete - The agent uploaded new host
data, then the cloud platform completed an assessment of the host
based on the host snapshot maintained on the cloud platform. If
there is new assessment data (e.g. new VM vulnerabilities, PC
datapoints) the cloud platform processes this data to make it
available in your account for viewing and reporting.
