I have installed the .NET agent  (MSI file) on a Windows machine. There are processes / services running  and our apps in .NET got reflected in the controller side.

 

In Java world where I can remove the startup parameters and control the instrumentation ON / OFF.

 

How do i backout completely  or  temporarily disable the AppDy .NET agent?

 

I require this for testing purpose with and without the instrumentation.

Hi Jayaram,

 

For to cleanly disable .Net Agent, it will take following steps- 

 

1) Find System Level Environment Variable by the name of "COR_ENABLE_PROFILING" and change its value to 0.
2) Stop and Disable Agent Coordinator Service ( @ Services.msc).
3) Recycle all your instrumented applications ( this step is very important because after you recycle, due to steps you took in 1) and 2), Agent Profiler and other Agent dlls will not be loaded into Process Memory and hence will stop any kind of instrumentation).

 

When you need to enable .Net Agent again - 

 

1) In the System Level Environment Variable, change the value of "COR_ENABLE_PROFILING" and set its value to 1.
2) Enable and start Agent Coordinator Service ( @ Services.msc).
3) Recycle all your instrumented applications then apply the continuos load on the instrumented application.

 

Please let us know, if you have any question.

 

Thanks,

Ashish.
