Release Notes for AppDynamics Application Performance Monitoring for Pivotal Platform tile

Note: Upgrades from AppDynamics v1.x are not supported. If you previously installed AppDynamics v1.x, uninstall it and install the latest version.

5.0.106

Release Date: Nov 14, 2019

  • Major release
  • Buildpack now sereaches $APPD_CONF_HTTP_URL/ and $APPD_CONF_HTTP_URL/$APPD_AGENT (prefered) for configuration overrides.
  • Fixed Node naming issue for .NET HWC Applications
  • Added On Prem Controller support for Python Applications

4.7.81

Release Date: July 19, 2019

  • Added advanced configuration option to override the name of the AppDynamics Service exported by AppDynamics Service Broker. The overridden name of the service must have appdynamics as prefix.
  • Fixed missing image in MarketPlace UI

4.7.70

Release Date: July 17, 2019

  • AppDynamics Buildpack now supports Application Container Correlation for Node.JS application when used in tandem with AppDynamics Platform Monitoring Tile v4.7.237 or higher.
  • Added (obfuscated) Account Access Key Secret field. This field can be used with versions 4.7.x and higher of the AppDynamics buildpack, and version 4.19.2 and higher of the Java buildpack. AppDynamics recommends that customers update both the APM tile and Java/AppDynamics buildpacks to the latest version, in order to use this field. The unobfuscated field is deprecated and will be removed starting from version 5.0 of the APM tile.

Note: Support for obfuscation of the Account Access Key requires changes to the VCAP_SERVICES environment variable used by buildpacks and the APM Service Broker tile. The new Account Access Key Secret field can only be used if both the buildpack and tile versions support this change. Using the obfuscated field will change the representation in `VCAP_SERVICES` to:

VCAP_SERVICES[“appdynamics”][“credentials”][“account-access-secret”] = { “secret”: “<access_key>“}

Previously the unobfuscated field was represented as:

VCAP_SERVICES[“appdynamics”][“credentials”][“account-access-key”] = “<access_key>”

This major release now contains an AppDynamics Machine Agent and an extension that talks to a custom nozzle and collects KPI metrics from the cloud-foundry environment. Also, a dashboard application is included that automatically generates the custom dashboard on AppDynamics Controller. For more information, see AppDynamics KPI Dashboard and Metrics.

The tile contains:

  • AppDynamics Service Broker, for instrumentation of applications
  • AppDynamics Machine Agent, for collecting KPI metrics through Loggregator
  • AppDynamics Dashboard Application, for displaying the above collected metrics in a neat UI dashboard on controller

  • Pivotal Platform Ops Manager: v2.0.7 or later, or any v2.1.x or v2.2.x versions

Note: The tile cannot be used for OpsManager with Cloud Foundry versions later than v2.0.7, since the Loggregator component (reverse_log_proxy) needed for extracting the KPI metrics is not exposed.
