How to determine your application cluster

Occasionally incidents or planned maintenance affects only a subset of customers. In these cases, notices we post on status.appneta.com will include mention of the affected application cluster(s).

To determine which application cluster you are provisioned on, simply log in to APM and take note of the hostname portion of the fully-qualified domain name:

Support for latest product version

AppNeta offers full customer support on all products for the duration of your contract. As software updates are provided on continuous basis, the expectation is that you are running the latest version. If you experience an issue, and are not running the latest version, AppNeta Support will first ask you to upgrade, and then proceed with investigation from there.

Upgrades

APM-Public Cloud and Global Monitoring Points are updated automatically by AppNeta. APM-Private Cloud (if you use it) and Enterprise Monitoring Points are your responsibility to upgrade.

APM-Public Cloud upgrades

APM-Public Cloud (the SaaS version of APM) is upgraded on a bi-weekly basis and the upgrade generally requires a service interruption. The upgrade is rolled out to all the application clusters over the course of several nights beginning on the date specified in the latest release notes.

There are a few caveats you should be aware of:

  • During the service window you may not be able to log in.
  • 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.

APM-Private Cloud upgrades

APM-Private Cloud software should be upgraded periodically to take advantage of new features (described in the latest release notes). Upgrading usually requires a service interruption. Contact AppNeta Support if you wish to upgrade your APM-Private Cloud software.

Enterprise Monitoring Point upgrades

Enterprise Monitoring Points should be upgraded periodically to take advantage of new features (described in the latest release notes). For more information, see Upgrading EMP Software, Upgrade CMP software - AKS, or Upgrade CMP software - Docker Compose.

Global Monitoring Point upgrades

Global Monitoring Points are upgraded periodically and the upgrade usually requires a service interruption. Upgrade dates and times are posted on status.appneta.com.

Supported browsers

APM is supported on the following browsers:

  • IE - Internet Explorer 11.
  • Chrome & Firefox - Broader version support is available as the application is generally not sensitive to browser updates.

If you run into a display issue:

  1. Check that you are running a supported browser.
  2. Try upgrading to the latest version.
  3. Open a support ticket.

Supported OSes

Some features and Monitoring Point types require specific OS support:

Authentication methods

Various services support different authentication methods:

  • Web path tests - If authentication is required for Experience monitoring using Browser workflows, Basic, Digest, NTLM v1/v2, and Negotiated authentication schemes are supported.
  • Web proxy - If the Monitoring Point connects to the internet via a web proxy that requires authentication, only basic and digest authentication are supported. NTLM and Kerberos are not supported.
