All references to the Standalone Agent or Standalone Collection Agent in this document is applicable only if you are using IT Data Analytics version 11.3.01. The latest version released for a Standalone Agent is 11.3.01. Starting from version 11.3.02, no more versions will be released for the Standalone Agent. However, you can make a note of the following information:

  • You can continue to use Standalone Agent version 11.3.01 with IT Data Analytics version 11.3.02.
  • If you have created Data Collectors using a Standalone Agent in version 11.3.01, the data collection will continue to work with IT Data Analytics version 11.3.02.
  • You can also edit the Data Collectors to use PATROL Agent instead of a Standalone Agent in IT Data Analytics version 11.3.02.
