Instrument Your Infrastructure with the New AppOptics Agent for Windows

By Kevin Goldberg on March 23, 2018

Today we’re happy to announce the general availability of our host agent for Windows. The support for Windows is the latest addition to AppOptics infrastructure monitoring. Now, you can easily monitor resource utilization of Windows hosts that are running your applications.

AppOptics infrastructure monitoring allows users to visualize and monitor their key infrastructure metrics through custom dashboards integrated with their main data sources, including AWS, through our integration of CloudWatch.

Based on Intel’s Snap Framework, we’re able to use an API model that leverages several existing integrations and plugins. One integration we’re especially excited about is the SQL Server plugin that seamlessly integrates with the Agent for Windows to provide holistic server and infrastructure metrics.

Get started with the Agent for Windows

AppOptics was built as a joint infrastructure monitoring and application performance management tool. Monitoring both components within one solution allows you to contextualize and correlate your data and key metrics. On the APM side, our agents for Java and .NET already support Windows, so adding the Host Agent for Windows gives even more context so you can overlay and document key events.

If you’re an existing Windows user who runs their application and infrastructure within the Windows confines, this added AppOptics support will become your consolidated monitoring tool for your systems.

Getting started is easy. Simply download the host agent installer here, run the installer, and enter your API key once prompted. If you prefer a more advanced installation, download and save the msi file linked above and run the following command with your API token:


msiexec /q /lv* appoptics.log /i c:\temp\appoptics-snaptel.msi EULA=accept TOKEN=%APPOPTICS_TOKEN%

If you’re an existing customer, go to your instance home page, click “Add Host,” and follow the short steps.
