Is anyone else having trouble with their agent(s)? All of a sudden my agent is not running and when I try to do it again, I get: ``````
Hey @kiran I am currently able to start an agent without issue, what version of prefect are you running, are you starting the agent on a local machine or is it hosted somewhere?
Also would you be able to move the error into this thread, it helps the main channel stay a bit cleaner?
Copy code
❯ prefect agent start -q "my-queue-name"

Hi @Mason Menges I’m on prefect 2.4.0 running prefect on a remote linux server
Everything was working fine until a couple of days ago when the agent stopped
Hmm if you're running this in a virtual environment are you able to create a new venv and reinstall prefect there to see if that works correctly?
Also have you damonized the agent? This tutorial uses systemd and might help.
