OneAgent & ActiveGate release notes, version 1.161

OneAgent

Java

.NET

PHP

  • PHP 7.3 monitoring is available as a public beta as of OneAgent version 1.161.

C/C++

General improvements

  • We’re releasing an EAP (Early Access Program) that makes it possible to reconfigure host group assignments for hosts at any point following installation of OneAgent. For complete details of this solution, see Host group reconfiguration is now easier than ever.
  • OneAgent for AIX is now supported for operation in the presence of Active Memory Expansion (AME).
  • We’ve improved the supportability of our solution in the following areas:
    • For diagnostic purposes, the LD*PRELOAD variable, all DTvariables, and other Dynatrace relevant variables that are within the scope of processes are now printed in the process snapshot diagnostic log file. This change will help us diagnose reported problems faster.
    • The names of two log files created by OneAgent installer scripts on Linux have been changed to: uninstall_<pid>.log and service.log.
  • The OneAgent uninstall script (uninstall.sh) now properly clears the liboneagentproc.so entry from /etc/ld.so.preload even when installation.conf contents are corrupted. This assures that the monitored host is returned to its previous state after OneAgent de-installation, even in cases of erroneous configuration entries.
  • OneAgent is now tested for installation and proper operation on Ubuntu 18.10, Windows Server 2019, Fedora 29, and CoreOS 1911.4.0.
  • We’ve massively improved the internal resiliency of the OneAgent full-stack installer and are moving toward a significant, and much-needed, re-architecture of the OneAgent installer for Windows.
