Does the P9 agent run as a service/daemon?

Yes, and with at few small difference depending on type of operating system.

  • Microsoft Windows: The P9 agent runs two services: ”Panorama9 Agent” and ”Panorama9 Agent Updater” (which automatically keeps the agent updated). See here for information about how to start/stop the P9 services.
  • Mac OS X: The P9 agent runs two privileged Launch Agents: "com.panorama9.daemon" and "com.panorama9.updater" (which automatically keeps the agent updated). See here for information about how to start/stop the P9 LaunchDaemon.
  • Linux: The P9 agent runs as a non-privileged daemon: "p9-agent". A daily cron job keeps the agent updated. See here for information about how to start/stop the P9 daemon.

The agent takes up approximately 5 MB of disc space, less than 20 MB of memory on average and almost no processor or network bandwidth usage.
