App agent is not getting stopped

App agent is not getting stopped

Hi,

I've doubt with agent service start/stop.

I Stopped the AppDynamics App Agent service in server and verified in controller UI whether data reporting halted. But it still reports data like service is ON.

 

Same the case i face with DB agent agent service also., i stopped the APPD services and tried to validate it for alerting purpose(whether it throws alert for configured "APPD Agent availability" health rule), but it does not get halted , sameway it reports data.

 

Could someone please advise on this.

 

Regards,

Soundarajan

Hi Soundarajan,

Yes that is expected. Agent is actually loaded into the instrumented process so after stopping Agent Coordinator Service you have to actually recycle the instrumented process/IIS.

Hi Raunak,

 

Thanks for your reply.

So my understanding is  even if i stop the Appdynamics coordinator service also the data reporting will be there.

If i need to stop the data reporting completely i need to stop the IIS also.

 

Please correct me if im wrong.

Re: App agent is not getting stopped

You just have to restart the IIS. After restart CLR will load the profiler which will try and connect with Coordinator to identify whether this process needs to instrumented or not. Since Coordinator is stopped, Profiler will not get the response back from Coordinator and instrumentation will not happen.
