AppD .NET Agent for Linux

I have downloaded the binaries and am trying to implement a side car pattern per this article: https://www.appdynamics.com/blog/engineering/how-to-instrument-docker-containers-with-appdynamics/

I am following the install docs https://docs.appdynamics.com/display/PRO45/Install+the+.NET+Agent+for+Linux

onto a sidecar container and exposing the directory by mounting a volume. I am accessing this volume directory from another container but when I start the application the agent doesn't seem to start up. Environment variables look correct to me pointing to the correct host and what not. Is there a certain way to start up the agent?

I was able to determine my issue. It turns out, I was using a Debian Base Image with the alpine .Net agent for linux. I think it would have been nice to understand from the docs how agents start on their own. Once I fixed my base image, the agent simply started when I started my application which is pretty cool. I probably also would've been able to figure this out if I were able to download the agent of my choosing. I pulled the agent from a co worker who had downloaded it before but they didn't know what OS it supported. I tired downloading from the AppDynamics download center but even after creating an account and starting a free trial the download link just looks back and no download ever starts.
