AppDynamics Team (Retired)

The requirements for different components in the AppDynamics platform are based on the performance profile you select. The following information describes the different performance profiles and how to determine the profile size you need.


Network Considerations

If your network or the host machine has built-in firewall rules, you will need to adjust them to accommodate the AppDynamics on-premises platform. Specifically, permit network traffic on the ports used in the system. For more information, see Port Settings.


For expected bandwidth consumption for the agents, see the requirements documentation for app agents listed under Install App Server Agents.


System User Account

Install all platform components with a single user account or accounts that have equivalent permissions on the operating system. The user needs to have write permissions for the installation directory.
