    This topic covers release information for the AppDynamics App iQ Platform versions 4.5.x. In addition to the enhancements and resolved issues described here, the latest 4.5.x release includes enhancements and resolved issues included in certain limited-availability releases, as well as security fixes. 

    The first generally available 4.5.x release is 4.5.nnn, which incorporates fixes to pre-release issues in 4.5.nnn and 4.5.nnn.

    The release notes are inclusive. All updates since 4.5.nnn are noted in the 4.5.x Release Notes. The Product Announcements and Alerts page lists versions, along with release dates, across product versions. 

    This documentation reflects AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform version 4.5.x. Changes between minor versions are noted in the release notes and indicated in-place in the documentation where applicable.   

    AppDynamics App iQ Platform Notes 

    The following updates apply to the common components of the AppDynamics App iQ Platform, including changes to the cross-product elements of the Controller UI. 

    Enhancements

    Account Purging

    • You can submit a request via a customer service ticket to purge your Controller, EUM, or Analytics account. The AppDynamics team can also perform piecemeal search and delete requests using internal REST APIs.

    Audit Logging

    • Audit logging coverage has been made more comprehensive. It now includes the following:
      • Failed logins
      • Changes to configuration settings
      • Personally Identifiable Information deletion
      • Application deletion
    • Audit log, report, and API details have been enhanced to include more information on what was updated.
    • There is a UI for reporting of MDS audit logs.

    Data Collection Dashboard

    • You can view the current state of all configuration parameters that may affect your security and privacy from a single dashboard view. These settings include retention settings, custom data collectors, IP-address retention in EUM, etc. See Data Collection Dashboard for more information.

    Data Privacy Policy Dialog

    • AppDynamics provides a data privacy policy reminder, in the form of a UI dialog, when you or your users configure parts of the AppDynamics products that could be used to collect regulated or other protected information.
      This customizable statement is present in all areas of the AppDynamics UI where data collection can be configured.

    Custom Dashboard

    Universal Agent 

    User Management

    • Authentication and authorization security enhancements have been made to the AppDynamics App iQ Platform in the form of scalable, securable, and admin configurable support:
      • You can create and use API Clients to provide secure access to the Controller through REST API calls. These calls now use OAuth token-based authentication over basic authentication. See API Clients for more information.
      • The SAML authentication can handle encrypted SAML responses from identity providers. You can enable SAML Encryption on Authentication Provider of Administration on your Controller. 
      • When creating usernames in SAML in Azure environments, the UserName attribute is used if it is passed along. The NameID attribute is not handled if it is passed back in Azure. If you relied on the legacy behavior of concatenating the first name and surname, then you can work around this enhancement by changing your Azure provider to return the concatenated names in the UserName attribute.

    Java Agent Enhancements

    • Added a node property jmx-query-timeout-limit to override ignoring JMX rules/attributes.
    • The java agent supports transaction detection and data collector instrumentation for the IBM BPM product.
    • BT detection is logically related to Business Process. Inside a User Task, there are several elements involved between two user interactions which form part of a BT.
      Data Collectors for obtaining BPD instance ID and Task ID are defined.
      BT's are identified using identifiers like Task name and Implementation name instead of instance IDs or request GuIDs.
      By default, BT's are named using URL’s which consists of long ID-strings and, are meaningless in relation to the BPD process. Hence, the BT names now consist of one or more of meaningful identifiers like:
      • Service (Implementation) Name
      • Activity Name
      • Client-Side Human Service (UI Interface) Name
      • Task (User Task) Name

    Infrastructure Visibility Notes

    Important Note about Changes in Dynamic Monitoring from Previous Releases

    Starting in release 4.5, the default Dynamic Monitoring Mode (DMM) for all Standalone Machine Agents is KPI (collect Key Performance Indicator metrics only). This is true for the following metrics:

    This change can affect any custom features created in previous releases that rely on Diagnostic or Advanced Diagnostic metrics.  Examples include custom Health Rules, Dashboards, and scripts with metric API  calls.  AppDynamics strongly recommends that you disable these custom features or edit them to use KPI metrics instead. 

    For more information about Dynamic Monitoring Mode, see:

    Standalone Machine Agent Enhancements

    • The Standalone Machine Agent is now supported on Windows Server 2016.

    Server Visibility Enhancements

    • This release supports monitoring of applications deployed in OpenShift v3.
    • Dynamic Monitoring Mode enhancements:
      • Dynamic Monitoring Mode (DMM) is now supported for all Docker Visibility metrics. See Dynamic Monitoring Mode and Docker Visibility.
        TBD – Move this page over to the Cloud Space when 4.5 goes GA
      • The Controller now has three different DMM defaults for all agents reporting to that Controller. Each setting applies to a different set of metrics. 
      • The default for all three settings is KPI, the lowest setting: collect Key Performance Indicator metrics only. 
      • AppDynamics recommends that you leave these global settings at their defaults and increase the DMM on individual servers or containers on an "as-needed" basis: 
        • When you need to troubleshoot a specific server or container, increase the DMM on that object only. 
        • When you finish troubleshooting that object, set the DMM on that object back to KPI.
        • This workflow is described in detail in TBD. Link to page in Cloud Space when 4.5 goes GA
      • When a container monitored by a Java App Agent shuts down and restarts, any overridden DMM specified for the shut-down container is lost. The DMM for the restarted container automatically resets to the global default specified by sim.machines.dmm.container.defaultMode.
    • Docker Visibility enhancements:
      • The Container Details window includes a new Network tab. This tab is available only if the Dynamic Monitoring Mode for the container is Diagnostic or Advanced Diagnostic. This tab shows:
        • Network KB – Total traffic (KB)
        • Network Rate – Rate of traffic (KB/s) 
        • Network Errors
          • Packet Drops – Rate of incoming/outgoing packets dropped by the network. A high rate of packet drops might indicate congestion or other network issues.
          • Errors – Rate of incoming/outgoing packets with errors. 
      • The following new metrics are available in the Metric Browser:
        • %Busy Scaled – If the -cpus=<value> option is set in the container, this metric measures the scaled value of the CPUs property. If this value is not set, this metric measures the scaled value of the Logical CPUs property.
          You must enable CPU Scaling on the Controller to collect this metric. See Docker Container Metrics.

        • The following metrics are reported for all interfaces and for the eth0 interface:
          • Incoming/Outgoing Traffic (KB/sec)
          • Incoming/Outgoing Packets
          • Incoming/Outgoing Packets Dropped

    Network Visibility Enhancements

    • Transaction Snapshots now support network analysis and troubleshooting workflows. 
      In the Snapshot Overview, you can right-click on a flow and choose View Network Metrics. The resulting dashboard shows the Performance Impacting Events (top-left chart) for that flow and possible correlating factors for these events. See KPI Metrics in Right-Click Dashboards.
    • The Network Dashboard can now show Cross Application Flows.
    • This release includes a new default Health Rule for troubleshooting Network Agents: 
      Network-Host: Packet drops too high
      This rule triggers an alert when packets get dropped between a Network Agent and the host interface. A high rate of packet drops on the host can result in inaccurate metrics.    
    • TBD The Connection Explorer, Mapping Wizard, and Connections tab (in network link popups) display the Fully-Qualified Domain Names for remote services and Load Balancers by default. This makes it easier to identify the external services used by your monitored applications.
    • Usability enhancements:
      • Right-click dashboard charts now support both linear and logarithmic scales. Click in the top-right of each chart to change the scale to best highlight metric spikes and variations.
      • The Transaction Snapshot window makes it easier to analyze multiple network links used by the same application flow. Open a snapshot; right-click on a multi-link flow; choose View Network Metrics; the resulting dashboard includes a menu (top left) for switching between link views.
      • You can open the Unmapped Connection Wizard directly from a Tier Dashboard if that tier has any unmapped connections.
    • The Network Dashboard uses a new visual convention to represent TCP Endpoints.

    Known Issues

    Standalone Machine Agent Known Issues

    • Reset Machine Agent action on the AppDynamics Agents window is not available for 4.4 and higher Machine Agents.
    • (Windows only) The JavaHardwareMonitor extension and the ServerMonitoring extension (introduced in 4.2) assign network names differently. If you have any health rules based on JavaHardwareMonitor names, and you want to use these rules with the ServerMonitoring extension, you will need to update the names that these rules are based on.

    Server Visibility Known Issues

    • If a metric name contains colons or pipe characters (: or |), the Metric Browser interprets the name as hierarchically separated. These characters could appear in a process name, a disk or partition name, a mount point, or a network interface name. METADATA-1373
    • If the machine that a Machine Agent is monitoring goes to sleep, monitored processes might be duplicated on the Controller. Because the process has a new start time, the Controller interprets it a new process. When the configured process count is reached, the Controller marks the duplicated processes as terminated and purges them.
    • (Windows only) You must have .NET Compatibilty Mode enabled for Server Visibility to work correctly on a server with a .NET APM agent installed.
    • Server Visibility does not support the following on Solaris:
      • Solaris zones
      • Unicode characters
    • The following Health Rule is disabled by default in this release: 
           Disk Usage is too high on at least one partition. 
      This wildcard health rule can result in high resource consumption and health rule evaluation times on the Controller. If this rule is critical for your environment, the recommended practice is to create your own custom Health Rules and apply specific rules for specific volumes on specific servers. For more information, see the following Support Advisory: 
      https://community.appdynamics.com/t5/FEZ-Knowledge-Base/Server-Visibility-Support-Advisory/ta-p/22408

    Docker Visibility Known Issues

    • The Standalone Machine Agent running inside the container sometimes reports a few extra volumes for the host machine. This can result in a higher total volume for the aggregate volume metrics.
    • There might be gaps in the container network I/O metrics. This happens because the Docker API resets the accumulated network I/O metric data for every 4.2 GB of data sent or received. When the data is reset, the Standalone Machine Agent calculates negative I/O values and does not report a data point for that time window.
    • If the agent started monitoring the current container after the beginning of the selected time range in the Controller, the Controller might show metric data prior to the container start time. This metric data will include metrics from a previously monitored container. This behavior occurs when the Controller flag "sim.machines.reuse.enabled" is enabled. 
    • If the agent started monitoring the current container before the beginning of the selected time range in the Controller, the data is correct for the current container.
    • If a container stops running while it is being monitored, the Tiers & Nodes Dashboard > Server tab will show data for the stopped container rather than for the underlying server.
    • In some cases, container monitoring is suspended when some containers that are currently being monitored are stopped. This issue has been observed on Docker API version 1.24. The suggested workarounds, in this case, are to
      • Restart the Standalone Machine Agent (Docker Visibility will start monitoring the containers), or 
      • Upgrade to Docker CC/EE v17.03 or Docker Engine v1.13.
    • cgroup data collection is not supported in Kubernetes deployments. If the Standalone Machine Agent is monitoring containers deployed as Kubernetes pods, do not enable the cgroup Enabled setting.
    • The Container Details > Network tab does not display IP or MAC addresses for monitored containers.

     

    Network Visibility Known Issues

    • In the Application Flow Map, you can click on a flow and view a Network tab in the flow popup. The Network KPIs shown (Latency, PIE, Errors) are based only on the exit traffic from the initiating service on that flow. To view Network KPIs for all monitored traffic to and from that service, go to the Network Dashboard and open the popup for a network link.
    • In some cases, the KPIs for a tier or link might be different in the Network tab vs. the Network Flow Map. The popup window shows the latest data; the Flow Map updates data every two minutes. Any discrepancy between KPI values is due to this difference in reporting times.
    • If you open the Network Flow Map for an individual node, the KPI metrics for node-to-load-balancer and node-to-tcp-endpoint links show network KPIs for all nodes in the parent tier (instead of KPIs for the individual node only). To view KPIs for the individual node, open the link popup and look at the Connection KPIs.

    Known Issues

    • Controller audit reports do not work immediately after upgrading the controller to 4.5. Audit table migration messages are logged in the server.log file when audit reports are run before completing the audit database table migration process. Try running the audit reports again at least an hour after the upgrade.
