I am trying to experiment with setting up AppDynamics with a standalone application.
Can technically any .exe application be recorded by the Agent? I have a test C# program that simply prints out Hello World a thousand times with a small sleep in the loop.
I also created a POCO match on a class name 'Program' and method 'Main' in the Controller UI under Console->Instrumentation->Rules.
Afterward, I restarted the Coordinator service and ran my application.
Are there steps I am missing, or is this kind of application too simplistic / does not match the criteria for AppDynamics to record information?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes, main was only executed once. I followed your instructions and set the POCO rule onto a new method which is called in the loop to print.
I've restarted the Coordinator service and then tried running the program a couple times on both a regular Windows 10 machine and a Windows Server 2012 R2, both with Agents linked to the same application installed, with the Windows Server console window showing a "running obfuscated agent" near the beginning of the print statements.
The AgentLog.txt also reflects that the program "returns a matched standalone profiler config," but there still is a warning that the RegistrationChannel "Could not connect to the controller/invalid response from controller, cannot get registration information." I'm guessing this is related to the 403 error from my other post?
