There are false alerts in APM 10.7 workstation due to the agents are swapping from one collector to another one.
There is a moment when that agent is not aware of the new collector and it triggers an alert causing false alerts and creating confusion in the production environment.
There is a desperate need to know how to fix this as we are using Introscope to monitor when a server is offline.
The default Connection Status metrics are not cluster-aware. So if an agent disconnects from one collector and immediately moves to another collector, it will still show disconnected (value=3) in relation to the first collector but connected (value=1) to the second collector. The alert is thrown because the threshold is set to fire above a value of 2 (represents an agent reporting slowly)
