In the Patching screen, the dashboard displays the various patching statuses of your virtual machines (or hosts): 

  • Green indicates a virtual machine in a Secured patching status.
  • Yellow indicates a virtual machine in a Warning patching status. 
  • Red indicates a virtual machine in a Critical patching status.

Not Available indicates that Armor does not have patching information available. In short, Armor is not sure if a patch is available because the patching information is not available.


The Patching status can change based on the following two conditions:

  • The date of the last reboot
  • The date of the last applied security patch

The overall status of your virtual machine is based on the individual status of your virtual machine's subcomponents, including Patching.



Condition 1 - Date of last reboot

If the date of the last reboot was between 7 to 40 days ago, then the Patching status changes from Secured to Warning

If the date of your last reboot was 40 days ago or more, then the Patching status changes from Warning to Critical

Condition 2 - Date of last applied security patch

If the date of your last applied security patch was between 60 to 89 days, then the Patching status changes from Secured to Warning

If the date of your last applied security patch was 90 days or more, then the Patching status changes from Warning to Critical

Analysis of patching data

Armor labels the Patching status based on the worst status. For example, if the date of your last reboot was 9 days ago, but the date of the last applied security patch was over 90 days, then overall, the Patching status is Critical


Troubleshoot patching data

To troubleshoot virtual machines that contain Patching subcomponents in a Warning or Critical status, search for and apply the latest vendor-supplied security patches.
