AppDynamics does not directly support SELinux. For troubleshooting SELinux, consult your security team.


This page lists the requirements for monitoring Apache with SELinux.


The Apache agent requires the following:


  • Read/write/execute privileges on <agent-install-dir>/logs directory.
  • Read/write/execute privileges on <agent-install-dir>/logs/appd-sdk directory.
  • The ability to read, write, create, and unlink Unix sockets.
  • The ability to create, write, add_name, remove_name, and setattr on class dir.
  • For automatically launching the proxy on RHEL/Centos 7, class capability2 block_suspend.
  • Read/execute privileges on <agent-install-dir>/WebServerAgent/Apache/ and/or
  • Read/execute privileges on <agent-install-dir>/sdk_lib/lib/
  • Read/execute privileges on <agent-install-dir>/conf
  • Read privilege on <agent-install-dir>/conf/appdynamics_agent_log4cxx.xml


Note: Many of the read/write requirements can be met by setting the type, recursively, of the <agent-install-dir> to httpd_sys_rw_content_t.
