APM Insight Data Exporter - Checksum Validation

You can verify the authenticity of the downloaded Data Exporter with SHA256 checksum validation. This ensures that the downloaded exporter is credible and is not tampered with by any malicious code or software.

To verify the authenticity of the agent, follow the steps given below:

  1. Download the required agent provided here - Windows, Linux (glibc), Linux (glibc arm).
  2. Follow the steps below to validate the checksum value:
    • For Linux systems, execute the following command:

      sha256sum <Data_Exporter_File_Name>

    • For Windows, you can use either of the following commands:
      • Open Command Prompt and execute the following command:

        certutil -hashfile <Data_Exporter_File_Name> SHA256

      • Open Windows Powershell and execute the following command:

        Get-FileHash <Data_Exporter_File_Name> -Algorithm SHA256

  3. After executing the commands, you will obtain a checksum value. Check that value with the one downloaded from the checksum file.

Sample Output:

Note: If the checksum values differ, do not unzip or open the file.
