app_name: "My app name"
tier_name: "ROR"
node_name: "test"
host: "test"
port: "test"
account: "test"
access_key: "some key"

Also Please Do Let Me know How Will I get  app_name, tier_name, node_name, controller, host, port, account, access_key.

1) WARN -- AppDynamics: Unable to start Instrumenter due to a configuration error: app name required

Since you're using a config file (.yml) and not the env, make sure you're using the correct syntax, I don't think you use " in .yml. Also, I'm assuming in your code, you're actually passing a correct port, account and access key, and not just "test?"
