AppMon Clients for Windows and *NIX uses 64-bit architecture, which has several advantages:
- Standalone clients are included in Windows and Linux full installation packages, so separate installations are no longer necessary.
- For Linux 64-bit, there is no need to install extra libraries.
- Bigger data sets for analysis, coinciding nicely with the introduction of the Frontend Server serving these.
32-bit Client is no longer supported with AppMon 6.5 and later.
What to know before client installation
- You can install the AppMon Client on Windows, Linux or MacOS X (Intel architecture only).
- Review System Requirements - AppMon Client for exact supported OS versions.
- The Linux installation process requires a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.8 or later.
- AppMon Server, Collector and Client standalone installations run only on operating systems with Java 8. On Windows and Linux, the AppMon package comes with a private JRE 1.8 for run time.
- The Client on the Mac requires JRE 1.8 for run time.
