Programs with 32bit can run on 64bit platform but not inverted.
Best practice to use compatible programs.
Please pay attantion in case you want to re-install agent, you should remove all hyperic's resources that was discovered by this agent. It means you're going to lose all historical data.
I greatly appreciate the response. You indicate best practice is to use compatible programs. 32-bit applications can run on 64-bit platforms but is the 32-bit Hyperic agent not compatible? I'm just curious if there is any benefit for me to pull the 32-bit agent off of these 64-bit machines. It's sounds to me like there isn't and that I should just upgrade the 32-bit agents to the latest version.
Thank you again.

Agent 32bit can run on 64bit , but we don't support.
When working with 32bit agent in 64bit machine, it can cause JVM to crash.
further more Sigar used wrong libraries which caused wrong metrics values.
Thanks. That helps me make the decision on what I need to do.
Please keep us updated if the issue resolved.
