With these additions, owners of applications built with all of the popular PHP frameworks and any current version of the PHP runtime can experience AppDynamics' famous time-to-value and end-to-end Business Transaction monitoring. Read the full documentation for a complete list of PHP supported environments.


IIS In-Process Hosting for ASP.NET Core 2.2

.NET Agent v4.5.8 supports IIS in-process hosting for ASP.NET Core 2.2. This enables you to monitor your .NET Core applications running on the latest .NET Core release, whether they are running in Azure or on-premise. 


.NET Agent for Linux Enhancements

Analyze data collected from the .NET Agent for Linux (v4.5.8) and create business monitoring dashboards to better understand your .NET Core applications with Transaction Analytics. AppDynamics will also automatically detect and monitor backend calls to Redis using the stackexchange library on .NET Core for Linux. We are working hard on extending out-of-the-box visibility with every release.


Mobile Agent Version Scheme

We’ve updated our Mobile Agent version scheme so we can deliver releases to you faster. Use our Mobile Agents with the recommended minimum Controller and EUM Server versions for optimal performance and access to the Agent’s latest features. Read the full documentation for details.


Enhanced Performance and Scale for IoT Dashboards

We’ve improved the speed at which the IoT pages and widgets load in the Controller so your dashboards can load in just seconds.


IoT Monitoring License Provisioning and Display

In v4.5.6, we added IoT license consumption to the Controller License page. In v4.5.7, we enhanced the screen even further to include license overages, color coding based on usage, and IoT Peak entitlements. This will provide a more accurate representation of the IoT license usage. Read the full documentation for details.


Business Transaction Correlation for the Fetch API

Gain an added layer of visibility into your browser application performance with Business Transaction correlation for Ajax requests made with the Fetch API. 


Support for Azure SQL Managed Instance

Gain insight into your Azure SQL Managed Instance with AppDynamics Database Visibility. Starting in v4.5.7, you can configure Microsoft SQL Server Collectors to monitor events in Azure SQL. Read the full documentation for details.

Several enhancements were added in v4.5.19.02, including:

  • Improved JavaScript Agent injection for Fiori for End User Monitoring
  • Export/Import functionality for ABAP Agent connection settings and instrumentation rules
  • Support for SAP PI 7.40 (Java single-stack only)
