Experience Manager Monitors function independently from the Operations Center server. However, a connection between the Experience Manager Monitor and the Operations Center server is required for the transfer of performance data or configuration information. If the connection is absent, the monitor continues to function. After reestablishing the connection, information automatically uploads to the server.
Experience Manager Monitors dynamically retrieve new code from the Operations Center server during the restart process for code updates and patches.
To verify that updates were successfully downloaded for a monitor, check the /logs/bootstrap.trc file on the machine where the monitor is installed.
