Dynatrace Java Agent

With 1.79 we are introducing general JMX support

Nginx Beta – additional binaries supported

As explained in our Nginx Beta announcement, Nginx does not support Dynamic Module Loading. Therefore Dynatrace Agent needs to know which binary is used so that it can inject the Dynatrace Nginx performance monitoring module at runtime. With Sprint 79 we have increased the supported Nginx binaries from about 450 to 1319 different binaries. The following package sources have been added.

Dynatrace support for Nginx starts with version 1.4 of Nginx.

1 For some older builds no debug symbols are available from the vendor.

Nginx Beta – commercial Nginx Plus is now supported

Version 1.79 supports now also the Nginx Plus binaries. Service detection and basic metrics are now also available for the commercial version. Nginx Plus specific metrics are under development and will be available soon.
