Issue/Introduction

Downloaded the bundle asm-monitor-20.x.tar.gz from ACC SaaS to monitor ASM and contains the libraries json-20180130.jar, commons-codec-1.11.jar and the asm-monitor.jar so they were placed in the "lib" folder and updated the ASMCtrl.sh startup script to use the new jars.Questions:

1.- How to know if the ASM agent running is now using the latest version? 
2.- In this version there is a way to see the metrics per "stage" in webdriver/jmeter scripts in the APM investigator. How is it enabled?

Environment

ASM agent 11.x onwards

Resolution

1.- The asm-monitor-20.x.tar.gz is a bundle but not a full agent package. The new replacement of EPAgent is Infrastructure Agent so by creating a new APMIA package with the ASM bundle in Command Center, it would mean the latest ASM extension will be used.

2.- To enable it, please make sure the following properties are set to true as explained in the article "Configure DX App Synthetic Monitor for DX-APM", refer to:
