1. Why did AppDynamics change the install process to include the Enterprise Console (EC)?
With an increasing number of customers who have a large number of Controllers and complicated deployment environments, AppDynamics is trying to make theupgrade and installation process as streamlined as possible.
The new Enterprise Console automates the task of installing and administering the Controller and Events Service using both a GUI and a command line interface.
If the Enterprise Console host goes down, it does not impact Controllers, Events Service, or HA-pairs.
