Systems that AppDynamics Database Visibility Supports

Once Database Visibility is available, you can create collectors that run on the Database Agent to monitor any of the following systems:

System Category

System Type

Supported via Amazon RDS






 MongoDB, MongoDB cluster 2.2 and higher



all versions including Percona and MariaDB


Microsoft SQL Serveryes

2005, 2008, 2012, 2014, 2016 and SQL Azure


Microsoft SQL Server on Linux

 SQL Server on Linux is currently available as a public preview, and is not recommended for production use. Database Visibility works correctly with this preview release, but until a stable version of SQL Server on Linux is available, monitoring results may vary.
 Oracle, Oracle RACyes10g, 11g, and 12c




all versions

 IBM DB2 LUW 9.x, 10.x, 11.x


Sybase ASE



 Sybase IQ  

Hardware Monitoring





32-bit (will also work on 64-bit systems)

 Linux 32-bit and 64-bit




all versions





 Amazon RDS  

To avoid metric value errors, use a 64-bit JRE with the 64-bit operating system.

If you use a third-party application along with Database Visibility to monitor Sybase, the data displayed in the controller may not display correctly. For accurate metrics, it is recommended that you do not use both a third-party application and Database Visibility to monitor Sybase.
