This werk only applies to the Linux Agent.

Formerly, the Agent Updater Check did not update immediately after a manual action on the host. This could lead to some confusion. Notably, you had to wait for the next update cycle to have a successful Agent registration displayed within the Check.

In order to mitigate this situation, the Agent Updater now:

  • Invalidates the cache file age after registration in order to have an Update executed with next Check_MK Agent execution

  • Updates the cachefile information after a successful manual update.

The latter action is not performed in --debug option mode.

Information about the cachefile updates will be displayed in -vv mode
