Standalone Machine Agent Supported Platforms
Supported platforms and environments for the Standalone Machine Agent are dependent on which metric data collection extension is being used. This depends on the machine's OS. See Machine Agent Metric Collection for details.
The Standalone Machine Agent requires a Java Virtual Machine. JRE 1.8 or higher is required. Downloads for many of the supported OSs include Oracle JRE 1.8. The Standalone Machine Agent should work with most, if not all, of the JVMs supported by the Java Agent that are JRE 1.8 or higher. However, it is extensively tested only for the Oracle JDK and OpenJDK.
Note the following about the available Machine Agent downloads:
- For tested platforms listed in the following table, AppDynamics recommends using the bundled version of the 4.4 Standalone Machine Agent.
- To run the Machine Agent on other platforms (such as AIX or HP-UX), use the unbundled Machine Agent ZIP without the JRE. The agent host must have JRE 1.8 installed.
- If you are using a 64-bit Operating System, use only a 64-bit JRE.
A 64-bit long has a maximum and minimum value of 9223372036854775807 and -9223372036854775808, respectively, whereas a 32-bit long has a maximum and minimum value of 2147483647 and -2147483648, respectively. To handle large values for metrics, run the Machine Agent using a 64-bit JDK.

Other operating systems and versions that are supported by JRE 1.8 should also work, but are not fully tested by AppDynamics.
- Oracle JRE 1.8
- IBM SDK, Java Technology Edition, Version 8
- HP JDK/JRE 8
You should be able to run the Bundled version of the Standalone Machine Agent on machines based on Power Architecture processors, including PowerPC processors, but Server Visibility is not supported on these platforms.
