PEGA0010 alert: Agent processing disabled

Updated on January 21, 2022

The PEGA0010 alert is triggered by agents in the following situations:

  • Agents are manually stopped or terminated from the System Management Application (SMA).
  • Agents encounter errors during processing.

The alert identifies the agent name, agent activity, queue number (index of this agent queue from the Rule-Agent-Queue instance), and the event that triggered the alert.

Example message text

Agent "Pega-ProCom" activity "Assign-Corr.SendCorr" disabled due to execution errors
Agent [Pega-ProCom] activity [System-Queue-ServiceLevel.ProcessEvent] queue number [1] terminated manually ErrorMsg: Terminated manually

Reasons for the alert

The system automatically shuts down the agent until a system administrator restarts the agent. Determine the cause of failure by examining the standard Pega log or by accessing the SMA agent management page to review the "Exception info" column for the disabled agent.

Not all agent failures trigger this alert. If an agent run results in an exception, the agent thread goes through a process in which the Pega 7 Platform tries to handle the problem in different ways, depending on the exception type.

When the agent is disabled and triggers this alert, the system reschedules the agent automatically to restart at a later time when one of the following situations is true:

  • The agent is a system agent, that is, the activity name starts with System and the activity class starts with Code-, or the agent is a standard agent with Auto Queue management.
  • The error is tagged as a temporary problem by the Pega 7 Platform. For example, when an OutOfMemoryError error occurs or the agent activity produces the custom Pega 7 Platform exception PRInterruptedException.
