Should the machine agent be installed separately for windows server or will it be bundled in the .msi?

is it required to install a machine agent separately on the windows server or else it will monitor just with the app agent simultaneously?


please provide support links if you have any. Thanks in advance.

Hello Mohammed,

Thanks for posting the question on the Community.

The Machine Agent, which monitors performance statistics for the machine, is a separate component from the App Agents, which are designed to monitor specific applications. It does not come bundled with any of the App Agents.

You can download the Machine Agent for Windows here:

You can also find detailed instructions for installation here:

One more thing to note: if you install the .NET Agent and Machine Agent on the same Windows machine, there is an additional step you need to take in order for the two agents not to conflict with one another. Please see the documentation here about enabling .NET Compatibility Mode:

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Best regards,
