The agent may be up and running, but if no monitoring has been defined or there are no monitoring updates coming in, the respecting time stamps do not get updated and the monitoring status eventually gets questioned by the services, hence the question mark. Simply select some objects for monitoring and the question mark will go away.
If it is expected that no monitoring updates are coming in, then the question mark can be ignored. It may point to a problem, however.
