QUESTION

Agent Procedure MONSETBOOT$########## - what is this? Why is it running?

 

ANSWER

An agent procedure is running every time the agent goes online. The procedure name is MONSETBOOT$ followed by the agent GUID. For example if the agent GUID is 219098134476284 then the procedure name is MONSETBOOT$219098134476284.

 

This is a system script that is run when the agent comes online. The purpose of the script is to verify that the monitor sets applied to this machine have been properly deployed and that the monitor counters (if any) are running.

 

Even if the script fails to complete, there is usually no remediation necessary. Because in the large majority of cases, the monitor sets are applied and running. In other words, if monitor sets are responding, then a failure of the MONSETBOOT agent procedure will have no effect on the operation of the agent or Kaseya.
