Hi there,

Lately, I’ve been getting messages at the start of every month to my root email with the following message after updating the DigitalOcean monitoring agent:

run-parts: /etc/cron.daily/do-agent exited with return code 100

Do I need to be concerned with this? I tried Googling, but there is no information about a return code 100 on here.

You can check the cron log as well, you might be able to see a more detailed error in there. You can check the last 100 rows in the cron log with this command:

tail -n 100 /var/log/cron
