Install AppDynamics Agents

Once you have a Controller, install the AppDynamics agents in your environment.

The AppDynamics product module types use different types of agents. For example, for application monitoring, you need one of the AppDynamics App Agents.

An AppDynamics deployment consists of multiple agents to monitor different components of your application environment. For most types of agents, you can use the Agent Download Getting Started Wizard in the Controller UI to quickly get started. The Getting Started Wizard appears the first time you log in, or by navigating to the Controller UI, the Agent Download Wizard appears. Follow Applications > Create an Application > Create an Application using the Getting Started Wizard. Follow the instructions in the wizard to install the agents in your application environment. You can access the wizard directly from the home page in the Controller UI.
