APM CA Application Performance Management Agent (APM / Wily / Introscope) DX Application Performance Management DX SaaS


We have installed the APM Infrastructure agent on our application server and upon that deployed the EP agent sample plugins but these are failing and we get the following format errors in thelog file

1/28/19 10:40:50 AM GMT [ERROR] [IntroscopeAgent.EPAgent HTTP] [ stderr ] Can't open perl script "C:\apm": No such file or directory

The definition in the has the script defined as follows

introscope.epagent.stateless.EpaSamples.HTTP.command=perl {ApmExtensionHome}\\bin\\ -url


APM IA 10.7 Windows


The expansion of {ApmExtensionHome} is not able to handle spaces in the path - the APM IA  in this case was installed in "C:\apm ia"


The APM IA must be installed in a location that does not contain spaces in the full path - a defect has been raised for this restriction to be addressed

No other workardounds have been identified - enclsong the path in quotes does not help
