Reasons for Uninstalling a Brightmetrics Agent: 

  • You have requested to discontinue subscription to one of the Brightmetrics service modules
  • You want to move the agent to another location*

*To uninstall and move an existing agent to another location, use the reinstall information here instead. 

Uninstalling steps for Brightmetrics Agent:

  1. Notify us
    Removing the agent will not cancel the subscription; you will want to notify Brightmetrics support and/or your value-added reseller (VAR) to ensure that any subscriptions or modules that you would no longer like to use have, in fact, been canceled.
  2. Once you have identified and accessed the server that the agent is installed on
    Navigate to the Add/Remove Programs control panel and uninstall the agent from there.
