AppDynamics provides machine agents to monitor your hardware and operating systems.
There are two machine agents:
- The Standalone Machine Agent, sometimes called the Java Machine Agent, is a separate installation. See Standalone Machine Agent.
- The embedded .NET Machine Agent is automatically installed with the .NET Agent. See Configure the .NET Machine Agent.
Combined with app agents, the machine agents help you monitor your entire infrastructure. See Monitor Infrastructure.
You can leverage machine agent metrics in health rules to proactively monitor your infrastructure. See Health Rules.
