The AppDynamics Server Visibility module uses the Machine Agent to provide extended hardware metrics and Service Availability Monitoring. Server Visibility includes additional windows in the Controller UI that enable you to quickly see underlying infrastructure issues impacting your application performance. This means you can rapidly troubleshoot hardware performance problems that are impacting your applications.
- Review the Server Visibility Requirements and Supported Environments.
- Install and configure the Machine Agent on a machine with a supported OS as described in Install the Standalone Machine Agent.

Search Results and Sorting
From Controller 4.5.13 onwards, pagination is the default behavior on the servers and containers list pages. The information is fetched on demand and additional records will be retrieved and displayed as a user scrolls. Search is only available for the name and host id columns. Sorting is only available on the hostname, container, metric % and health fields.
