Agent States

The following table describes the possible states of an agent.

State

Description

NotStarted

The agent is in one of the following states:

     Not registered with Intel AMT

     The agent’s host platform has returned from S5 to S0

     The agent’s host platform has returned from Moff/Sx to S0

Stopped

The agent watchdog timer associated with this agent has been stopped via an API or network command.

Running

The agent has registered with Intel AMT and the associated agent watchdog timer is actively counting down.

Expired

The agent watchdog timer associated with this agent has counted down to a 0 value since the agent has not registered or sent a heartbeat within the allocated time.

Suspended

The agent’s host platform has entered suspend (S3, S4, S5) state or an operating system restart was initiated.

 

 Note:

In suspended state (system is in S3, S4, S5 or an operating system restart was initiated) the Intel AMT timer countdown is suspended. When the host returns to S0 from M0-S3/M0-S4, the agent enters the state it was in before the host moved to S3/S4.
