Agent and Plugin transperency
Caused by many problems we've got, it would be very useful to get the following data in the GUI per Agent:
1. Status retry_counter per plugin (only at Windows (the others don't have it (strange)))*
2. Plugin runtime incl. the performance data per plugin
3. Plugin listing, state and each version of it
* the plugin retry_counter duration is the Windows agent lifetime, not the agent session!
Very good Idea
Thank you for that feature request - long overdue!. We suggested it many years ago and actually started building our own debug version, to find out long running sections/plugins within the agent. We also received from Tribe29 at one point a debug version, but apprently it never made it into the master.
We suggested a plugin status check, which collects runtime/version for example that you can filter/sort after it and find out where you have longrunners or an old version installed (not everyone uses the bakery) - so exactly the same you're looking for.
In addition we suggested giving each section of the agent a debug mode, so if activated (not to run always as it also cionsumes extra time) you will collect the runtime of each section to find out where you may struggle with performance. For example on huge hardware, where it takes sometimes minutes to collect all hardware/filesystem data.
