Agent plug-ins are components that help agents to handle various tasks, such as polling.

When you enable and disable features in the Orion Web Console, the Orion Platform deploys and removes plug-ins automatically.

When you have issues with an agent, check the status of the agent and its plug-ins.

  1. Click Settings > All Settings in the menu bar.
  2. Under Node & Group Management, click Manage Agents.
  3. Select an agent, and click More Actions > View installed agent plug-ins.

If you think a plug-in should be available and cannot find it in the list, you may need to check your purchased products or manually update your agent. New plug-ins and updates to existing plug-ins are installed when an agent is updated. It may take a few minutes before the status changes.

Up to 20 plug-ins are deployed simultaneously at a time.

Orion deploys and removes plug-ins as needed when you enable and disable features. It is normal for agents to have different plug-ins.
