How can I use appdynamics on aws elastic beanstalk?

I can't get a solution to the problem that I get forever "Waiting for Connection..." message in the web panel.

Please help me.

 

Here now my configuration:

 

File: .ebextensions/appdynamics.config
commands: 
  01-load-appdynamics-java-agent: 
    command: "sudo curl ... that load the agent zip archive from an distribution server"
  02-unzip-appdynamics-java-agent: 
    command: "sudo unzip -o /var/ad.zip -d /var/appdynamics"
  03-Give-permissions-to-appdyn: 
    command: "sudo chmod -R a+rwx /var/appdynamics"
File: Procfile
web: java -javaagent:/var/appdynamics/ver4.4.3.22593/javaagent.jar -Dappdynamics.force.default.ssl.certificate.validation=false -Dappdynamics.agent.applicationName=SMABEWAPI -Dappdynamics.agent.tierName=SMABEWAPIFRONTED -Dappdynamics.agent.nodeName=SVRONE -Dappdynamics.controller.hostName=test.mydomain.com -jar sma-1.4.0.jar

Thank you for your help.

 

Sincerely,

I suspect your issue is with the curl command.  This is a working EB config that adds the agent to tomcat

 

files:
    "/tmp/appagent.zip":
        mode: "000444"
        owner: ec2-user
        group: ec2-user
        source: https://packages.appdynamics.com/java/4.4.0.3/AppServerAgent-4.4.0.3.zip
 
# command are executed in alphabetical order

    03unzip:

        cwd: /opt/AppDynamics/appagent

        cwd: /opt/AppDynamics
    05cleanup:
        command: "rm /tmp/appagent.zip"

    - namespace: aws:elasticbeanstalk:container:tomcat:jvmoptions
      option_name: JVM Options

I hope this helps.

 

Warm regards,

Thank you Peter for your very quick answer.

 

When I execute your script then I get following error:

Command failed on instance. Return code: 1 Output: command 04perms in - FILES-TO-DEPLOY/.ebextensions/appdyn.config failed. For more detail, check /var/log/eb-activity.log using console or EB CLI.

 

What I make false?

 

Hope you have an idea what goes wrong.

Can you share the contents of the /var/log/eb-activity.log file?

 

Thanks,

Peter

I have a solution that works.

 

Here my solution:

 

File: Procfile
web: java -javaagent:/opt/AppDynamics/appagent/javaagent.jar -Dappdynamics.controller.hostName=myhostname -Dappdynamics.controller.port=443 -Dappdynamics.controller.ssl.enabled=true -Dappdynamics.agent.accountName=myaccountname -Dappdynamics.agent.accountAccessKey=myaccesskey -Dappdynamics.agent.applicationName=myappname -Dappdynamics.agent.tierName=my-FRONTED -Dappdynamics.agent.nodeName=mynode -jar sma-1.4.0.jar
File: .ebextensions/appdyn.config
commands: 
  01reset:
    command: "rm -rf /opt/AppDynamics/appagent"
    ignoreErrors: true
  02makedir:
    command: "mkdir -p /opt/AppDynamics/appagent"
  03makedir-tmp:
    command: "mkdir -p /tmp"
  04-load-appdynamics-java-agent: 
    command: "sudo curl -k https://myserver.com/pathtomyzipfile.zip > /tmp/appagent.zip"
  05-unzip-appdynamics-java-agent: 
    command: "sudo unzip -o /tmp/appagent.zip -d /opt/AppDynamics/appagent"
  06-Give-permissions-to-appdyn: 
    command: "sudo chmod -R a+rwx /opt/AppDynamics/appagent"
  07cleanup:
    command: "rm /tmp/appagent.zip"  

I hope that helps for another user the struggle with that.
