Choose How You Want to Install

The deployment option you choose to follow should be based on the components of the AppDynamics platform that you want to deploy. Deployment options that include the Controller and Events Service installations require the Enterprise Console, while the EUM Server installation requires the use of package installers.

Based on your AppDynamics deployment, you may use the Enterprise Console for the following tasks:

Installation and Upgrade Quick Starts

Based on how you deploy and what components of the AppDynamics you deploy, there are different installation and upgrade steps to follow.

New Installations Quick Start

This installation path describes the use of the Enterprise Console to install the Controller and Events Service. The EUM Server must be installed separately as it cannot be installed using the Enterprise Console.

  1. Install the Enterprise Console.
  2. Use the Enterprise Console to create the platform and add hosts.
  3. Install the Controller and Events Service on the same host by using Express Install. Use Custom Install to install an scaled-out Events Service that runs on a host that is separate from the Controller. Custom installations gives more flexibility on where and how to install Controller and Events Service.
  4. Install the EUM Server.
  5. Complete the post-install tasks for the Controller, Events Service, and EUM Server.

For a more detailed description of this path, see Platform Installation Quick Start.

Upgrade Quick Start

This is the upgrade path to follow using the Enterprise Console and EUM package installer:

  1. Install the Enterprise Console.
  2. Discover and upgrade an existing Events Service with the Enterprise Console.
  3. Upgrade the Production EUM Server with the package installer.

For a more detailed description of this path, see Discovery and Upgrade Quick Start
