ManageEngine® Applications Manager
APM Insight .NET Agent
Applications Manager's .NET agent gives you insight into the way your .NET web-transactions work; helping you quickly drill-down to the root cause of issues. Now you can resolve performance degradation of .NET applications, no matter where they originate. Just download the latest .NET Agent and deploy it in your application server.
The .NET Agent, instrumented into the application using .NET profiling API, collects the data (Metric/traces) and sends it to the Agent service through the Inter Process Communication (IPC). The Agent service, in turn, receives the data from the .NET agent and sends it to Application Manager through a scheduler.
Microsoft .NET Framework Version 3.0 and above.
IIS 6.0 and above.
Install the agent setup (apminsight-dotnetagent-x32.msi or apminsight-dotnetagent-x64.msi) under administrator privileges.
Run the .msi file . This opens a "select installation folder" window.
Click on Browse and select the folder path to install the .NET Agent. Click Next.
In the next window, under the Startup Options, check the Start the Agent after installation check-box if you wish to start the agent. Click Next to start installation of the agent..
A .NET Agent Configuration window appears before the installation is completed. Configure Application Manager's host and port and other apdex settings.
Click the Save button to complete installation.
Now the .NET agent is ready and all the ASP.NET applications running on the server will be monitored. The collected data should be available in the apm-insight tab of Applications Manager's web client within a few minutes.
After installation,the operations that you can perform on the agent are:
If you have not checked the Start the Agent after installation check-box in the Startup Options dialog box during installation, manually start the agent service from Windows Service Manager. The service name is ManageEngine .NET Agent. Starting the agent service resets the IIS and sets the environment variables of the profiler.
Click on Edit Configuration from the ManageEngine .NET Agent folder in the Start Menu to edit the agent configuration. This opens the .NET agent configuration dialog box. After making the required changes, click Save to update the configuration file.
You can stop the agent service manually from the Windows Service Manager. This will close the IPC connection between the application and the service; removing the profiler variables from system environment variables and disabling the profiler. It also resets the IIS.
You can manually re-start the agent as mentioned above in Starting the .NET Agent.
You can uninstall the agent from the Start menu. Click on Uninstall .NET Agent from the ManageEngine .NET Agent folder in the Start Menu to uninstall the agent.
