This quick start guide provides a high-level view of using the Enterprise Console to install the AppDynamics platform, including the Controller and Events Service.
See Discovery and Upgrade Quick Start for the upgrade quick start guide.
The process described in this topic uses the Enterprise Console to perform the following tasks:
This quick start is intended to introduce you to the Enterprise Console and AppDynamics platform. Before you start, review the requirements pages for the platform components.
Install the Enterprise Console with the following command:
When the installation wizard launches, complete it to install the Enterprise Console. For more information about how to install the Enterprise Console, see Install the Enterprise Console.
Verify that the Enterprise Console successfully installed by opening the GUI using the host and port you specified during installation:
9191 is the default port.
After you install the Enterprise Console, you can complete the platform installation process with the GUI. The following steps describe how to install a Controller with an embedded Events Service. It then describes how to scale up the Events Service to run on a separate host. To install a Controller with a scaled up (unembedded) Events Service, see Custom Install.
You can install the Events Service on a separate host directly by selecting a Custom Installation at step 2.
Open a browser and navigate to the GUI:
9191 is the default port.
In this step, you expand your platform to use a scaled up Events Service deployment. It is important to note that data is not migrated from an embedded instance to a scaled up instance.
appdynamics.analytics.server.store.urlto the URL of the Events Service as exposed at the load balancer. For example,
Now that you have a running Controller and Events Service, try setting up high availability for the Controller.
Before proceeding, see Set Up a High Availability Deployment. Specifically follow the steps indicated in the section on configuring Controller High Availability pair environment in for prerequisites.
Once you have fullfilled the prerequisites, follow these steps:
Now you have two Controllers running in passive-active high availability mode. To complete the configuration, you need to set up a load balancer, so that you can easily switch traffic between the Controllers. See Use a Reverse Proxy. After configuring a load balancer, you would need to specify the URL address for reaching the Controller pair in the Enterprise Console UI by clicking Configurations > Controller Settings > Appserver Configurations, and specifying the URL in the External URL field.
You now have a function platform, consisting of Controller pair and a scaled up Events Service instance.
If using EUM, you can continue by installing an EUM Server. The EUM Server is installed separately, not with the Enterprise Console.
