    Download Agents

    AppDynamics agents monitor every line of code in your instrumented environment by using unique tags that are assigned to method calls and request headers. The agents capture performance activity and report to the Controller in real-time. The Agents download page provides access to every available agent in each applicable version for three operating systems to match your environment. 

    Under Available Downloads, use the filter options or the Search field to find an agent. 

    Filters:

    Each selection automatically updates the list of available agents. If no agents display, edit your filter selections.

The Platforms download tool provides access to each platform application in all available versions for three operating systems to build your environment.

    Automate AppDynamics Software Downloads with cURL

    Note

    When you download files, always copy or transfer the files in binary mode. If you want to transfer a file that you have downloaded on Windows to a Linux machine, use binary mode in your transfer program when you move the file to the destination Linux environment.

    Where applicable, AppDynamics also publishes software for distribution on package manager repositories such as RPM, npm, pip, NuGet, and more. For products that are available via a package manager, you can find relevant instructions to retrieve and install the software in Install the Standalone Machine Agent.

    The following steps demonstrate how to use cURL to get the latest version of an AppDynamics software download.

    1. Retrieve an OAUTH token with the download scope:

      Code Block
      curl -X POST -d '{"username": "<username>","password": "<password>","scopes": ["download"]}' https://identity.msrv.saas.appdynamics.com/v2.0/oauth/token
    2. View the latest version of each available product from https://download.appdynamics.com/download/downloadfilelatest. For example:

      Code Block
      curl https://download.appdynamics.com/download/downloadfilelatest/ 
    3. Inspect the response (or parse via script) to find the download_path of the latest product version. 
    4. Download the binary by running the following command:

      Info

      Replace access_token with your OAUTH token from Step 1, and replace url_to_file with the download_path value from the response in Step 3.

      Code Block
      curl -L -O -H "Authorization: Bearer <access_token>" <url_to_file>

    Validate Software Package Downloads

    You can use checksum validation and a digital signature (for specific packages) to validate software downloaded from AppDynamics Downloads. This validation requires the machine on which you validate a package to include a TLS 1.2 implementation. 

    Checksum Validation

    1. Navigate to AppDynamics Downloads.
    2. Click Checksums beneath the software package description to display the MD5 and SHA256 checksums. 
    3. After your download completes, run a checksum tool and compare the results against the checksum information on the downloads page.

    Digital Signatures

    AppDynamics digitally signs the following packages using a certificate signed by a publicly known certificate authority:

    • .NET Agent
    • AppDynamics Controller for Windows MSI installer

    AppDynamics digitally signs the following packages using a PGP key:

    • Java Agent
    • Standalone Machine Agent
    • Standalone Machine Agent RPM package
    • Python Agent pip package

    The AppDynamics PGP public key is hosted on https://pgp.mit.edu under the User ID "help@appdynamics.com". For information about using a PGP signature to validate a software package, see Verify AppDynamics Software Downloads with PGP.
