The requirements for different components in the AppDynamics platform are based on the performance profile you select. This page describes the different performance profiles and how to determine the profile size you need.
CPU and Memory Space Requirements
When the Platform Administration Application host is shared with the Controller host, it should have enough space to match the Controller host requirements, since there is no need for additional memory for the Platform Admin Application.
However, when the Platform Admin Application host is not shared with the Controller host, then it requires 1 GB of free RAM, 10 GB HDD, and 2 CPU.
Your network or the host machine may have built-in firewall rules that you will need to adjust to accommodate the AppDynamics on-premises platform. Specifically, you may need to permit network traffic on the ports used in the system. For more information, see Port Settings.
For expected bandwidth consumption for the agents, see the requirements documentation for app agents, see Install App Server Agents.
System User Account
You need to install all platform components with a single user account or accounts that have equivalent permissions on the operating system. The user needs to have write permissions for the installation directory.
Operating System Support
Your AppDynamics platform is supported on the following operating systems.
Linux (64 bit)
Microsoft Windows (64 bit)
You can use the following file systems for machines that run Linux:
On-premises controller deployments on Linux are only supported on Intel Architecture.
The Controller and App Agents provide full internationalization support, with support for double- and triple-byte characters. This support provides the following abilities:
- Controller UI users can enter double- or triple-byte characters into text fields in the UI
- The Controller can accept data that contains double- or triple-byte characters from instrumented applications
Network Bandwidth Requirements
See Administer App Server Agents for information on bandwidth usage in an AppDynamics deployment.
