Need information on Configuring DX SaaS ACC for Java Agent using the Agent Controller. 

 

 

Environment

Release : SAAS

Component : AGENT COMMAND CENTER

Resolution

Agents collect application and infrastructure metrics. An agent package is a deployable set of agent binaries and configuration files in ZIP or TAR format, and contains the installation instructions. The Agent Controller is delivered as a DX APM agent extension. The Agent Controller manages agents running on the same host where the Agent Controller runs. By default, the Infrastructure Agent contains the Agent Controller. You can add the Agent Controller extension to Java agents. During run time, the Agent Controller starts as a subprocess of the agent monitoring process.

After configuring and downloading the agents, APM Command Center detects the agents through the Agent Controller. You manage the agents, which are now visible, in APM Command Center. Agent management in APM Command Center includes the following items:
  • Create agent packages
  • Configure agent packages
  • Save those package configuration settings for later use.
  • Upgrade the agent with the new package version
  • Run the diagnostics that provide reports on the environment that the agents run in
  • View filtered agent collections
  • Filter the agents by the operating system and monitoring environment
Whether or not you use the Agent Controller extension, the agents continue to send metrics and that is visible in
DX APM
. For more information, see Configure the Agent and Review the Agent in APM Command Center.
