An elastic agent will always have an Idle status, (i.e. Idle or Idle (Disabled)). If you disable an elastic agent, the elastic instance will remain idle. However, if you shut down the elastic instance, then the elastic agents process is killed and will not appear in the remote agents list. Hence, an elastic agent will never have an Offline status.
To view your elastic agents:
- From the top navigation bar select Administration ( ) > Build resources > Agents.
The agents for your Bamboo instance will be displayed. Any elastic agents that are running will be listed in the Remote agents section. The elastic agent name will be prefixed with Elastic agent, e.g. Elastic Agent on i-2204914b.
