Standard agent does not run despite a restart



Standard agent does not run despite a restart.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Open the agent.
  2. Stop the agent.
  3. Start the agent. The agent does not run.

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application code or rules.

There are multiple connections which do not return to the connection pool, due to the SQL exceptions (EXCP001). This results in PEGA0026 and PEGA0020 alerts.


Perform the following local-change:
  1. Rename the property to be less than 29 characters in length such that the connections are displayed correctly. This resolves the SQL exception.
  2. Isolate the agents to run on a different node other than the node on which Marketing or Campaign run is configured. This avoids parallel heavy load on the same nodes.
