AIOps Platform 

  • With the enhancement to Mobile Real User Monitoring (RUM), you can now filter performance data, such as network requests, crashes, and code issues, based on device specifications, such as CPU type, memory, disk space, and battery. Check out Mobile RUM Metrics for details. (Released November 16, 2020)

  • Expanded EUM data binding options in Dash Studio allowing you to visualize browser and mobile applications performance data on dashboards built in Dash Studio. Additionally, Simple Navigations allow you to seamlessly jump to specific areas of the product from Dash Studio with one-click. (Released November 16, 2020)

  • To improve the accuracy of hardware metrics driven from the Machine Agent, we now integrate database visibility with server visibility. Additionally, to improve your visibility into your Oracle Server, we are now pulling additional metrics. See the Database Monitoring Metrics documentation. (Released November 16, 2020)

  • We have released multiple enhancements to our SAP monitoring capabilities and ABAP Agents. See the SAP monitoring release notes for full details. (Released November 23, 2020)
    • A new SAP ABAP trace automation feature can be used to capture top-5 ABAP statements or call graphs for slow dialogue sessions. Enable this flag under Snapshot Settings.
    • Now, all instrumented SAP (ABAP) system settings can be backed up, into either a Transport of Copies or a structured ZIP file. After the system is refreshed, you can use either to restore all settings
    • A new Analytics API adapter supports grouping custom analytics data into harmonized custom analytics schemas.

Also, check out "Order to cash" out of the box, increased PII filter control, a new API for publishing application events, and the new IDOC Monitoring Dashboard collector.

 

Ease of Use

  • We have simplified the Agent Installer Monitoring Settings, by reorganizing the section into three tabs: Managed Processes, Unmanaged Processes, and Uninstrumented Processes. We have also added the ability to paginate the Monitoring Settings page, eliminating the previous 1000 record limitation. (Released November 16, 2020)

  • Node.js Serverless Tracer: We added an environment variable, APPDYNAMICS_HTTP_TIMEOUT_MS, which allows you to set the timeout in milliseconds for all the HTTP calls made by the tracer. See Resolved and Known Issues for details. (Released November 2, 2020)
