The last weekend some of my jobs hanged up. I checked in the logs and I saw automate went offline for few mins

Please check the attachments to see the error in the logs.

Are any of you experienced this issue or was just me?

I did check the windows logs for automate and I found some errors.

System.ServiceModel.CommunicationObjectFaultedException: The communication object, System.ServiceModel.Channels.ServiceChannel, cannot be used for communication because it is in the Faulted state.

Server stack trace:
at System.ServiceModel.Channels.CommunicationObject.Close(TimeSpan timeout)

Exception rethrown at [0]:

Look at the attachments for more info.

Hello Alfredo,

Unfortunately the agent must maintain a constant connection with the execution and management server. Any gap in connectivity will result in a "agent not connected" message. The errors afterwards may be due to jobs still trying to execute or the agent trying to reconnect automatically. It is best to restart the agent service to allow the connection to reestablish properly.
