In a recent PR (, I received the following error message in the Azure Pipelines build results:

##[error]We stopped hearing from agent Azure Pipelines 5. Verify the agent machine is running and has a healthy network connection. Anything that terminates an agent process, starves it for CPU, or blocks its network access can cause this error. For more information, see:


Is there something on our end we can do to bring the agent back online, or should I simply wait a while and then try to restart the PR checks? Normally I'd avoid doing that, but in this case it's entirely unrelated to the PR.
