OneAgent & ActiveGate release notes, version 1.167

OneAgent

  • Starting with OneAgent 1.167, OneAgent SDK for Java (version 1.7.0) supports the tracing of database requests.

.NET

Node.js

GO

  • Added support for Go 1.12.

General improvements

  • We’re improving the resiliency and automation of OneAgent deployment with each release. There is a large improvement for Windows coming soon. In preparation for the new architecture, we’ve changed how OneAgent is deployed on Windows via MSI files. Read more about this change in the OneAgent for Windows announcement.
  • Starting with OneAgent version 1.167, only users who have the OneAgent deployment privilege will be allowed to change the OneAgent monitoring modes between Cloud Infrastructure Monitoring mode and Full-stack mode. For more information about monitoring modes, see Get started with infrastructure monitoring.
  • This previous version of OneAgent for AIX introduced improved detection of IP addresses for network interfaces. With the latest release, Dynatrace now reports all IP addresses, both IPv4 and IPv6.
  • Dynatrace allows you to use environment variables to control deep process monitoring. The Process monitoring rules now provide a new condition Environment variable that allows for specifying arbitrary environment variables for injection decisions.
