Release : 12.0
Component : CA-7
The retry is only applicable to jobs/messages that are waiting to be sent to the agent. If there are no jobs/messages waiting to be sent to the agent, we don't do anything and the agent status stays as NO-CONN.
If the 7 is up and you shut down and restart the agent, the agent will send a CONTROL MSG to CA 7 which will also cause the agent to go from NO-CONN to YES. Again, only if you recycle the agent.
Regarding the RETRYINTERVAL, RETRYCOUNT, SLEEPTIME, they are only used when a CA 7 attempt to send a message (eligible for retry) fails. In the client's case we will retry every 4 seconds, 5 times, and then wait 15 minutes (900 seconds) before repeating the cycle.
Lastly, note there is only 1 timer, so those wait times are the minimal wait times. If you use different times for different agents, the waits can end up being longer.
