Collector fail over incase of DB agent?

Hi,

If collectors are in a Collector group and If we configure a DB agent on a collector, does Collector load balancing(fail over) applies here just in case the provided Collector is not available?

Thanks,
Rajani

I looked into this and given that database agents are closer to monitors than true agents they do not participate at all in anything related to collector groups such as loadbalancing or failover. So if the collector you are running the database agent from goes offline database monitoring will be suspended.

Thanks for clarification.
