actualMonitoringState is OFF - should I be worried


Hi there,


I've been looking at the Topology & Smartscape - Process API to pull out any processes requiring a restart in order for monitoring to either be restarted or simply to let OneAgent version update take place.


In doing so I've noticed that there are many processes where the actualMonitoringState is OFF, the expectedMonitoringState is ON but restartRequired is false. What are these processes and do I need to worry about them?


My best guess at the minute is that they are old processes that are just no longer running but are still kicking around in Dynatrace or they are processes that have been replaced by newer instances.


Can I just ignore them and focus on the processes requiring a restart?


Any advice would be much appreciated.
