AppOptics agents are no longer receiving updates. The new SolarWinds Observability Libraries can send APM data to AppOptics and are regularly updated with new features and improvements. If your components are supported by the new libraries, consider transitioning to the SolarWinds Observability Libraries for your APM needs. Alternatively, you can also consider using SolarWinds Observability as your primary APM monitoring solution.

To upgrade to the SolarWinds Observability Java Library, uninstall the AppOptics Java Agent and follow the rest of the steps described in Migrate the Java Library from AppOptics to SolarWinds Observability. Before restarting the application, make the following additional configuration changes to have the SolarWinds Observability Java Library continue sending data to AppOptics:
- Set a valid AppOptics service key. See the SolarWinds Observability configuration options for the new configuration file and environment variable names.
- Set the collector configuration to the AppOptics endpoint
Upgrade to a newer version of the legacy AppOptics Agent
Upgrade the AppOptics Java agent by following the same steps as Installation.
We check if
./javaagent.json has been modified to retain any custom configurations you may have made. If the file has been modified, the new json file is stored under a different name, e.g.
./javaagent.json.6.18.0. As a next step you should transfer all your custom changes to
./javaagent.json to something else such as
