This section contains pages on administering the Controller. Depending on how you installed and deployed the platform, you may have more than one method to administer the platform.

If you use the Enterprise Console, many tasks can be done through the GUI or command line. For information about how to use the Enterprise Console, see the pages in the Enterprise Console section.

Additionally, AppDynamics provides command-line tools for common operations, such as starting and stopping the platform components and their services. Some tasks involve using the administration interface for the underlying Glassfish application server, either the web interface or the command-line tool.

  • Administer Controller configurations via the Enterprise Console.
  • Other configurations: 
    • admin.jsp: Access basic operational settings for the AppDynamics installation, including data retention settings, tenancy mode, and more.   
    • Glassfish administration tool: Use the Glassfish admin tool, as admin, to configure settings in the underlying application server. 

The pages in this section describe how to use the tools along with other administration tasks.
