APM Insight Ruby on Rails Agent: Checksum Validation

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

To verify the authenticity of the agent:

  1. Compare the checksum value provided in the apminsight.gem.sha256 file with the value given below.

    Follow the steps below to validate the checksum value.
    • For Linux systems, execute the following command

      sha256sum apminsight.gem

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

        certutil -hashfile apminsight.gem SHA256

      • Open Command Prompt and execute the following command:

        Get-FileHash apminsight.gem -Algorithm SHA256

  2. After executing the commands, you will obtain a checksum value; check that value with the one provided in step 1.
