Too many agent processes

Hi all,

On one of the managed node, there are lots of OV processes running. Below is just a small part of it:

Re: Too many agent processes

HI,

Please kill the agent once "opcagt -kill" and then check how many OV process are running, if you find any get them killed (or ask UNIX admin to kill them once).
Cleanstart the agent "opcagt -cleanstart" and see which all OV process are running.

please attach both the results.

Re: Too many agent processes

Do the following
opcagt -kill
be sure that all the sub-service that you mentiond are killed and if not
kill -9 ( process name ) and then
clear the agent buffer
go to the /var/opt/OV/tmp/OpC
and delete all files ( rm -f * )
and then start the agent .
