OSX Daemon Check

Monitor the status of the selected OSX Daemon process and receive a notification (based on the alert settings), where they are in anything other than a running state.

During Agent installations (pre-Mac Agent 2.3.1) all Daemon labels are scanned. Those are set to always run are automatically added.

This behavior was changed from Mac Agent 2.3.1. The OSX Daemon Checks are not automatically added during installation, if required they are manually added post-Agent installation from the Dashboard.

Where a Check is added or edited the new settings are downloaded to the Agent the next time it communicates back to the Dashboard and applied when the Check runs after that.
