Install an Agent - Prerequisites

The Agent is the foundation of the Atera monitoring system. The Agent runs as a service that securely communicates back to the cloud. The Agent has very low overhead usage, meaning it can run comfortably on minimum specification machines, and automatically updates itself whenever a new version is released.

An Agent must be installed on each monitored device.  The Agent then reports on status, PC condition, and performance at regular intervals. The reporting intervals are based on extensive big data analysis, ensuring optimal notification timing.

There is no limit and no cost to the number of Agents that can be installed on servers or workstations.
