AppNeta Performance Manager (APM) is upgraded on a bi-weekly basis and the upgrade generally requires a service interruption. The upgrade is rolled out over the course of several nights beginning on the date of these release notes. Check to find out when your service instance will be upgraded. You can discover the name of your service instance by logging in to APM and examining your browser address bar. Remember that always has the most up-to-date information regarding maintenance/upgrade events. We encourage you to subscribe so that you receive a reminder just prior to any service window.

There are caveats you need to be aware of:

  • During the service window you might not be able to log in.
  • The upgrade won’t produce any gaps in your experience or usage monitoring history. However there may be a small gap in experience monitoring history, typically less than 10 minutes, at the time your instance is upgraded.
  • Advanced voice assessments and voice/video tests that are either scheduled to start or are running during this window will need to be restarted.
  • Report schedules will be paused during this window, so any reports scheduled to run at this time will be missed.

New features

  • VMware vSphere support for v35—AppNeta now offers a VMware vSphere-compatible version of the v35 virtual appliance. In this release PathView and AppView monitoring are available, however FlowView is not. The v35 is the successor to the v30 appliance, so you can replace an existing v30 with a new v35, and assign your existing Medium Office licenses to a v35.

  • Navigation enhancement—In AppView, you can now open the web path details page in a new browser tab. Previously you had to click through from the web app list to the web path details page in the same tab.
