Stop the ABAP Agent Services

Before the upgrade, stop all the services:

  1. Deactivate the instrumentation in transaction /DVD/APPD_CUST.

Update the HTTP SDK Proxy

  1. Unzip the contents of the downloaded file.

  1. Datavard Reuse Library
  2. Datavard Insights (SAP Monitoring tools)
  3. AppDynamics ABAP agent

Uninstall Procedure

The following procedures explain how to uninstall the monitoring solution.

Stop the ABAP Agent Services

Before the uninstallation, stop all the services:

  1. Deactivate the instrumentation in transaction /DVD/APPD_CUST.
  2. Stop all performance metric collectors in transaction /DVD/MON. Select the Collector Jobs tab, then click Stop for all jobs.

Uninstall the ABAP Agent and SAP Monitoring Tools

To uninstall, import these deletion transport requests in to the SAP system, in the following order:

SAP NetWeaver earlier than 7.4:

  1. AppDynamics BEP uninstall (only if using NetWeaver Gateway)
  2. AppDynamics ABAP agent uninstall
  3. Datavard Insights uninstall
  4. Reuse Library uninstall

SAP NetWeaver 7.4 or later:

  1. AppDynamics ABAP agent 7.4 uninstall
  2. Datavard Insights uninstall
  3. Reuse Library uninstall

A deletion transport request is a regular SAP transport request (workbench request) that contains a list of repository objects flagged for deletion. When importing these transport requests, the objects from the list are removed from the system, including data in the database tables. These transport requests are created based on original installation requests (same list of objects) and when you uninstall they have to be imported in reverse order as installation transports.

Uninstall the SDK

To uninstall the SDK, delete the following folders:

  • <appdynamics>/appdynamics-sdk-native
  • <appdynamics>/appdhttpsdk

Uninstall the Machine Agent

To stop the machine agent, see: Start and Stop the Standalone Machine Agent.

To uninstall the agent, delete the installation directory.
