Re: Difference between .Net Microservices agent and .NET core agent

Hi Pauric,

 

.Net Microservice agent is nothing but the NuGet package or dlls based agent, which you install on the specific application solution to instrument it, it is specify as .Net Microservice agent.

 

If it is related to .Net Core based application on windows, so, we would specify it as .NET Core microservices agent for Windows.

For reference you can refer to the following document - https://docs.appdynamics.com/display/PRO45/.NET+Microservices+Agent

- https://docs.appdynamics.com/display/PRO45/.NET+Core+Microservices+Agent+Support

- https://docs.appdynamics.com/display/PRO45/Install+the+.NET+Core+Microservices+Agent+for+Windows

 

Let us know if you have any further questions.

 

Thanks,

Ashish.

Yes Pauric, you would need to install the ,NET Microservice Agent on each on the .NET Core applications which you want to instrument.

Re: Difference between .Net Microservices agent and .NET core agent

Perfect that makes sense. Correct me if I am wrong but if we have the old .NET machine agent installed on our server this is not compatible with the new .Net core micro services agents that will be installed on the applications or will a new .NET core machine agent need to be installed on the server also ?
