Install the AppMon Client

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.
Note

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.

Client installation directory

Documentation typically refers to the AppMon installation directory as DT_HOME (or <DT_HOME>).

The defaults for DT_HOME are:

  • C:\ProgramFiles\Dynatrace\Dynatrace <major.minorVersion> for a full installation.
  • C:\ProgramFiles\Dynatrace\Dynatrace Client <major.minorVersion> for a Client-only installation.

Install the Client

Windows

Download the installation package of choice and run it. With the full package you can run for a custom installation and manually selected components to be installed.
