3.8.4.1 Updates (SaaS Only)

SaaS Controller

  • EUM and Mobile APM HRs no longer fail to add the respective entities on runtime leads to NPE in controller log.
  • The event reactor's event queues no longer get stuck under certain error conditions.

3.8.4 Updates

Controller

  • The password you enter during installation for the Controller root user is now used for the Glassfish application server administrator as well. Previously, the password for this user was a preset value and not configurable at installation. This change does not affect upgrades. For more information, see Administrative Users.
  • The transaction detection REST API call for importing or exporting auto detected entry points now applies to all auto detected entry point configurations in the Controller, regardless of the app agent they were configured with. Previously, only auto detected entry point configurations for the App Agent for Java could be imported and exported using this command; now Java, .NET, PHP, and Node.js auto detected entry point configurations are also exported or imported. See Import and Export Transaction Entry Point Configurations.
  • The Linux version of the modifyJvmOptions utility now prevents you from adding a Java option that has the same name as an existing option in the domain.xml file. Previously, it permitted adding an option with the same name as an existing option as long as their values were different. In practice, this often resulted in unintended redundant entries in domain.xml. You must now remove the existing option before adding an option with the same name. Also, a new command for the Linux version of the utility has been added. It prints the existing options in domain.xml. To use it, enter:

    ./modifyJvmOptions.sh list


    For more information about modifyJvmOptions, see Modify GlassFish JVM Options

App Agent for .NET

App Agent for PHP

Component
Summary

 

3.8.3 Updates

Controller

  • The installation and upgrade procedures have changed as follows:  
    • During upgrade, the installer attempts to restart the Controller and database. If it cannot complete the restart within the timeout period, it exits and rolls back the changes. By default, the installer now waits 30 minutes for the startup to complete (previously the timeout was 10 minutes). If the Controller or database take longer to start up (most likely due to a large amount of data in the database), you can increase the timeout before running the upgrade. To increase the timeout, edit the <controller_install_dir>/.install4j/response.varfile by adding the ad-timeout-in-min property (for example, ad-timeout-in-min=50, to increase the timeout to 50 minutes). 
    • Instead of rolling back changes, if the timeout expires, the installer exits without rolling back changes. This gives you an opportunity to troubleshoot the issue and remediate before retrying the install or upgrade. You will need to revert the disk changes manually by restoring from the backed up copy of the installation and data directories before retrying the upgrade. See Upgrade the Controller for more information.
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and CentOS operating systems versions 6.3, 6.4, and 6.5 have been certified as supported platforms for the Controller. For the complete list of supported environments, see Supported Environments and Versions.  
  • In the Controller UI, custom match rules for entry points now show a priority field with default set to 0. 

Mobile APM

  • A new version of the AppDynamics plugin for Gradle-based builds of the Android agent (supporting Gradle 1.10 and Android Tools versions 0.7.3,0.8.3, and 0.9.2) is now available. See Instrument an Android Application.

3.8.2 Updates

End User Monitoring and Controller

An on-premise Controller with End User Monitoring (EUM) enabled needs to be able to connect to the EUM Cloud aggregator. If the Controller needs to make external connections through an authenticating proxy, you can now specify credentials for the Controller to pass to the proxy.

You configure the credentials using two new Controller Java options:

  • appdynamics.controller.http.proxyUser
  • appdynamics.controller.http.proxyPasswordFile

The value of proxyPasswordFile should be the location and name of the file that contains the plain text password associated with the user identified by proxyUser. For more information, see Set Up and Configure Web EUM

Web EUM

End User Response time is displayed in the Metric Browser in terms of percentiles (for this release, P90), regardless of the Controller used.

App Agent for PHP

The App Agent for PHP now supports:

  • PHP Web Service as a entry point.
    • This entry point requires a 3.8.2 Controller.
    • If you have distributed business transactions that call Java, .NET, or Node.js tiers from a PHP Web Service entry point, you must upgrade the app agents for those tiers to 3.8.2 to get full stack traces in the distributed call graphs.
  • NuSOAP as a PHP Web Service framework.
  • OCI8 as a database exit point.
  • NuSOAP as a Web Service exit point.

App Agent for Java

  • Sun JRMP support is disabled by default. You should test Sun JRMP support in staging before using it on production systems. Enable Sum JRMP support by setting the app agent node property, jrmp-enabled=true. This property defaults to false.


3.8.1 Updates

Controller

  • SAML group-to-role mapping 
    The Controller now automatically maps groups for a user as identified in SAML responses to roles in the UI. See Configure Authentication Using SAML
  • MySQL version update
    The version of MySQL included with the Controller has been updated from version 5.5.16 to 5.5.37. For Controller upgrades, the installer applies the new MySQL version to your upgraded instance. 

Mobile APM

  • The following mobile metric names have changed:
    • Network Request Error is re-named HTTP Error.
    • Network Connection Error is re-named Network Error.
  • The crashed file and crashed line items in the crash snapshot lists have been combined into a single item.

Web EUM

If a Web EUM instrumented page is associated with a server-side app agent, the cookie that the server-side app agent sets is now named ADRUM_BT instead of ADRUM_X_Y_Z as in previous versions.

App Agent for Java

  • HTTP Proxy authentication support 
    The App Agent for Java now supports user name and password authentication to an HTTP proxy server. 

  • New app agent node property capture-spring-bean-names can be used when a class is mapped to multiple spring bean names to display the class name instead of the spring bean name. See App Agent Node Properties Reference.

Security Notes for 3.8.1

  • The default security protocol used by the on-premise Controller has changed. For enhanced security, the Controller's secure listener now uses TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 instead of TLS v1.0 and SSLv3. 

    If using the Controller with an older version of the App Agent for Java or .NET framework, you need to be aware of security compatibility implications of the change. 

    This issue affects you if you have upgraded the Controller to 3.8.1 or later and still have any of the following deployed in your environment:

    • App Agents for Java version 3.8.0 or earlier (see Agent - Controller Compatibility Matrix for details on SSL compatibility by version)
    • App Agents running on .NET Framework versions earlier than 4.5

    If you are affected by this issue, AppDynamics recommends that you upgrade the environment, as follows:

    • For App Agent for Java, upgrade to the latest version of the App Agent for Java
    • For .NET, recompile the application to use the .NET Framework 4.5 and enable TLSv1.2 on the host machine.  

    If upgrading agents or framework is not possible, you can re-enable TLS v1.0 and SSLv3 on the Controller. For instructions on reenabling the security protocols, see Configure the Security Protocol

  • This release includes an updated version of MySQL. The update to MySQL 5.5.37 fixes several security issues in MySQL. 

New and Enhanced Features in 3.8

The following components have new and enhanced features in release 3.8:

    • The default storage location of the database password has changed to <Controller_Installation_dir>/db/.rootpw. 
    • The Controller can retrieve the database user password using other mechanism as well, including from an environment variable or from a command line prompt. 
    See Controller Data and Backups for more information.  See Upgrade the Controller for upgrade information relating to the database user password.

App Agent for Java Updates

  • Developer Monitoring Level
    • Developers can choose to relax monitoring constraints to capture more information about their applications while in development. Safeguards are in place to ensure an automation switch back to Production monitoring when the number of transactions tracked exceeds specified limits. See Monitoring in a Development Environment.
  • MBean Browser Enhancements
    • MBean Browser now allows invocation of mBean operations, supports the viewing and editing of complex attributes, and a new JMX entry in the left navigation menu allows another point of entry to JMX Metrics and the MBean Browser. See Monitor JMX MBeans.

Security Notes

The following section lists general security information for AppDynamics. For release-specific security information, see the update notes for that release.   

SSL Certificate Monitoring Extension

The SSL Certificate Monitoring Extension is a new extension on the AppDynamics eXchange that reports the expiration date of SSL certificates on the machine as a metric to the Controller. The extension reports the certificate expiration date metric for the domains and at the interval you configure.

For more information, see the SSL Certificate - Monitoring Extension listing.

Controller Notes

  • Install the Controller if you are not using the AppDynamics SaaS Controller Service. If you are using the SaaS Controller, skip the Controller installation.
  • Obtain the Controller for your operating system from the AppDynamics Download Center.

  • Known Issue: you may see an exception about a missing apache .jar file in the logs on startup. It is harmless. 
  • Known Issue: in some instances an exception may occur when exporting an application configuration.
  • Known Issue: installing or upgrading the Controller on any Windows system that does not use English as its system language will fail. For the workaround, see Non-English Language Setting Workaround.
  • Known Issue: After an upgrade of an on-premise Controller to version 3.8.1 or later, App Agents that use SSL may not be able to connect to the Controller. See Security Notes for 3.8.1 for more information.  

Installation Notes for the Controller

  • Before you install or upgrade the Controller, validate the hardware requirements as listed at Controller System Requirements. The sizing requirements have been updated and now include recommendations based on metrics per minute in addition to the number of nodes in the installation. Features such as monitoring asynchronous threads and End User Monitoring increase the number of metrics per minute flowing to the Controller.
  • AppDynamics strongly recommends that you install the Controller on a dedicated machine for adequate stability and performance.
  • The disk space requirements differ for each of the Controller performance profiles. Verify the disk space requirements for your performance profile at Controller System Requirements.
  • If installing on Windows, note the operational and configuration guidelines listed in Install the Controller on Windows for preventing the possibility of Controller data corruption due to conflicts with existing Windows processes. Also note the workaround if installing or upgrading a Windows machine that does not use English for its regional settings, see Non-English Language Setting Workaround.
  • Known issue: .NET 3.5 features are required in some cases to install the Controller as a Windows service. (.NET 4.0 installation alone may not be sufficient.) If you try to install the Controller as a service, the following error appears: "The following feature couldn't be installed: .NET Framework 3.5".

    This occurs on the following versions of Windows Server:

    • Server 2012
    • Server 2012 R2

    The following instructions assume the use of Windows Server operating systems (which have the Windows Server Manager). If you encounter this issue on a non-server version, such as Windows 8, you need to download the .NET 3.5 executable and perform the equivalent installation.     
     
    To install .NET 3.5 features: 

    1. As a user in the Administrators group on the local computer, open Windows Server Manager. 

    2. Select "Add Roles and Features" and click Next. 

    3. Click Next until you get to the Server Selection screen. 

    4. Select the server on which you want to install the Controller as a service. 

    5. Click Next in the Server Roles. 

    6. In the Select features screen, expand .NET Framework 3.5 Features and select .NET Framework 3.5. Keep the .NET Framework 4.0 option selected. 

    7. Click Install.

    You can now install the Controller as a service as described in the documentation.

Upgrade Notes for the Controller

  • For all major upgrades, AppDynamics recommends that you upgrade both the Controller and Agents. This ensures that you get all the latest Agent features and fixes. 
  • If you are upgrading both the Controller and the Agents, first upgrade the Controller then upgrade the Agents. 
  • Make sure that you have saved a backup of the following files before starting the upgrade procedure:  
    • <Controller_Installation-Directory>/db/db.cnf 
    • <Controller_InstallationDirectory>/appserver/glassfish/domains/domain1/config/domain.xml
    • <Agent_Installation_Directory>/conf/controller-info.xml
  • If you are applying the upgrade by passing a response file to the installer, you must pass the response file generated by the installer at first installation. This response file is at .install4j/response.varfile under the Controller home directory. Make sure that the settings in the file reflect any configuration changes you have made since installation. 
  • Known issue: An issue prevents you from changing the database port number at upgrade time if using a response file. If you set a different database port in the response file, response.varfile, from the one used by the Controller, the installation times out while attempting to start the database. 
  • Known Issue: In certain scenarios, the Controller upgrade on Windows may fail with an error message of “Unable to restore JVM options.” This happens if the modifyJVMOptions.bat utility has been previously used to modify domain.xml settings on the Controller instance. If you encounter this error on an attempted upgrade, contact AppDynamics Support for the workaround.

For more information, see Upgrade the Controller.

Non-English Language Setting Workaround

When installing or upgrading the Controller on Windows systems that use a regional and language setting other than English (United States), the Controller installation or upgrade fails. The error message may indicate that the Controller database failed to start or that the setup processes failed to reach the Controller. The error occurs when the installer is attempting to start the Controller, and causes the installer to abort the installation or upgrade. 

To work around this issue:

  1. Change the regional and language setting on the system to English (United States).
  2. Perform the upgrade or installation. 
  3. When the upgrade or installation is finished, edit the <Controller_installation_directory>\bin\controller.bat and replace the following line: 

     IF %TIME% == %START_TIMEOUT% (

    With:

    IF "%TIME%" == "%START_TIMEOUT%" (

    This line appears in the :startControllerDB section of the file. Notice the addition of quotes around both values used in the value comparison. 

  4. Save your changes. 

  5. Change the regional and language settings back to its original value.

Mobile APM Notes

  • Known Issue: the Mobile Geo Dashboard may time out if there are a large number of apps and large amounts of data.
  • The Mobile APM Agent increases the number of metrics reported, which may affect the hardware requirements for an on-premise controller. See Additional Sizing Requirements.
