The way the licensing works for agents is as follows:
When an agent checks in, it renews the hold on the license for another 45 day interval. If the agent manages to go more than 45 days without checking in to the console machine, it essentially goes into a dormant state. The agent will not scan, patch, and AV (if you are licensed for it) will be disabled. Should the agent check in with the console after the license has expired, it will become licensed once more and begin working again.
There isn't any real downside to having agents check in often, our default is every 120 minutes. In addition to renewing the license, when an agent checks in they will also receive information on any changes that were made to the agent policy to which they are assigned.
Thanks, Kevin. That makes my life easier!
