- Use a supported Windows- or Linux-based operating system supported by the platform. (See Platform Requirements.)
- Solid state drives (SSD) can significantly outperform hard disk drives (HDD), and are therefore recommended for production deployments. Ideally, the disk size should be 1 TB or larger.
- The Events Service must run on dedicated machines with identical directory structures, user account profiles, and hardware profiles.
- For heap space allocation, AppDynamics recommends allocating half of the available RAM to the Events Service process, with a minimum of 7 GB up to 31 GB.
- When testing the events ingestion rate in your environment, it is important to understand that events are batched. Ingestion rates observed at the scale of a minute or two may not reflect the overall ingestion rate. For best results, observe ingestion rate over an extended period of time, several days at least.
- The Events Service requires Java 1.8
- Keep the clocks on your application, Controller and Events Service nodes in sync to ensure consistent event time reporting across the AppDynamics deployment.
- Your firewall should not block the Events Service REST API port 9080, otherwise the Platform Admin will not be able to reach the Events Service Remotelyremotely.
