If your agent's image is set to agent:latest, then any new agent instances that are created, such as during autoscaling, will run on the latest agent version. Original agent instances will run on the agent version that was available during agent instance deployment.

  • Additionally, if your agent's image is set to a specified version, then any new agent instances will run on the specified version. 

To upgrade all agents to latest the version for all agent instances in the cluster:

  • You can replace latest or a previous version number with the latest agent version, such as agent:v0.1.15.
    • Review the following example: gcr.io/edgedelta/agent:v0.1.15
    • The latest version of the agent is listed in the Edge Delta Releases page.
