I suggest you ...

Correct the fact that all UNIX/Linux-based monitor health states are reset when a Management Server (or Gateway) is rebooted.

When a Management Server (or Gateway) is rebooted, all UNIX/Linux-based monitor health states are reset, resulting in the subsequent re-generation of a slew of alerts for all related x-plat agents

        100% with Larry Leblanc. When a reboot a MS or a Gateway, all of my actives monitors on UNIX/LINUX are reset and the Unix/Linux support teams are notified by the already know alerts. Imagine in the middle of the night...

        Though this may be currently be "By Design", all of my customers that monitor UNIX/Linux using SCOM are affected by the flood of alerts following a reset of the monitors when the MSs are rebooted following their monthly patch cycle.

        Please note that Joanie, the original requester, is not having an issue with the MS consuming high memory; the problem is particularly apparent following the monthly patch cycle.

        Hi Neha,
        I do have the same issue. I run into that problem once a week as the management servers hosting the Linux agents seem to run out of memory regularly. We have three dedicated servers and the virtual memory is going up to around 30GB. The servers need to be rebooted then to fix that issue (SCOM 2016 UR3).
        If we don't disable the subscriptions all of the open alerts will trigger again and cause lots of mails to be sent. It usually takes up to 10 minutes after a reboot for the status to be updated .

        Joanie, can you please tell how long does it take for the monitoring server to receive the present health state of xplat agents? How often you fall into this issue? What are the issues you face when health state is reset?
