Download Agents

AppDynamics agents monitor every line of code in your instrumented environment by using unique tags that are assigned to method calls and request headers. The agents capture performance activity and report to the Controller in real-time. Use the Agents download tab to access every available agent in each applicable version for three operating systems to match your environment. 

Under Available Downloads, use the filter options or the Search field to find an agent. 

Filters:

Each filter dropdown menu provides options that, when selected, automatically updates the list of available agents. If no agents display, edit your filter selections.

  • Version—choose the latest agent version or one or more previous versions.
  • Operating System—select one or more operating systems.

Automate AppDynamics Software Downloads with cURL

When you download files, always copy or transfer the files in binary mode. If you want to transfer a file that you have downloaded on Windows to a Linux machine, use binary mode in your transfer program when you move the file to the destination Linux environment.

Where applicable, AppDynamics also publishes software for distribution on package manager repositories such as RPM, npm, pip, NuGet, and more. For products that are available via a package manager, you can find relevant instructions to retrieve and install the software in Install the Machine Agent.

The following steps demonstrate how to use cURL to get the latest version of an AppDynamics software download.

  1. Retrieve an OAUTH token with the download scope:

    curl -X POST -d '{"username": "<username>","password": "<password>","scopes": ["download"]}' https://identity.msrv.saas.appdynamics.com/v2.0/oauth/token

  2. View the latest version of each available product from https://download.appdynamics.com/download/downloadfilelatest. For example:

    curl https://download.appdynamics.com/download/downloadfilelatest/

  3. Inspect the response (or parse via script) to find the download_path of the latest product version. 
  4. Download the binary by running the following command:

    Replace access_token with your OAUTH token from Step 1, and replace url_to_file with the download_path value from the response in Step 3.

    curl -L -O -H "Authorization: Bearer <access_token>" <url_to_file>

Validate Software Package Downloads

You can use checksum validation and a digital signature (for specific packages) to validate software downloaded from AppDynamics Downloads. This validation requires the machine on which you validate a package to include a TLS 1.2 implementation. 

Checksum Validation

  1. Navigate to AppDynamics Downloads.
  2. Click Checksums beneath the software package description to display the MD5 and SHA256 checksums. 
  3. After your download completes, run a checksum tool and compare the results against the checksum information on the downloads page.

AppDynamics digitally signs the following packages using a certificate signed by a publicly known certificate authority:

  • .NET Agent
  • AppDynamics Controller for Windows MSI installer

AppDynamics digitally signs the following packages using a PGP key:

  • Java Agent
