    hi,

     

     

    what is the best way to configure a CA APM agent for .net / iis and what version is recommended for .NET Version = 2.0.50727.8784

     

    which version I can use 10.3 or 10.5, I was reviewing the compatibility matrix and it is not clear to me. I have a CA APM MOM infrastructure and collector 10.7

    Hi Hervin,

     

    For .Net environments, you can use the agent IntroscopeDotNetAgentInstallxx_***, which is an .exe that is easy to install.

     

    Now, the version of the agent that you are going to install depends on your CA APM environment.

     

    In general, version 10.5.2 supports Framework V2 and V4.

     

    Remember that when you install the .Net agent, you must reboot the IIS, recommended that you do it with IISReset via cmd.

     

    Regards

    I have CA APM mom, collector and agent 10.7 sp2 but today I had a problem with IIS being locked. There is some way to configure it, some help or manual. I do not understand how to configure it or do you recommend me better 10.5.2?

    Hi,

     

    I put a comment I did a while ago for a theme of v2 & v4. Check what was explained here, and if you still have questions, let me know.

     

    .NET CLR v2 & V4 - No reporting 

     

    Note:

    - When you say it is locked , what do you mean?

     

    Regards

    Hi Richard,



    when installing version 10.7 sp 2 in IIS 7.0 NET 2 and without restarting the IIS the IIS started to fail after a few minutes. I recommend installing for this case version 10.5.2 (IntroscopeDotNetAgentInstall64_10.5.2.15.exe). Is there a manual that explains how to make the correct configuration when there are several applications in IIS?

    Thanks,

    hi,

     

    if I follow the steps of this document. It would work for me.

     

    Properties Reference .NET Agent - CA Application Performance Management - 10.3 - CA Technologies Documentation 

     

     

    no entiendo esto:

     

    • COR_PROFILER={5F048FC6-251C-4684-8CCA-76047B02AC98} -specifies the GUID of the native COM profiler DLL. The CLR EE uses the registry to lookup the profiler

     

     

    what is the GUID how do i get it

     

    Thanks,

    Hervin,

    When you install the .NET agent, the installer will create automatically the below 3 environment variables. About the 5F048FC6-251C-4684-8CCA-76047B02AC98 is it just the GUID that identify our .NET Agent profiler.

     

    • com.wily.introscope.agentProfile=%{INSTALL_DIRECTORY}%\wily\IntroscopeAgent.profile
      This variable specifies the .NET agent profile location.
    • Cor_Enable_Profiling=0x1
      This variable enables COR profiling.
    • COR_PROFILER={5F048FC6-251C-4684-8CCA-76047B02AC98}
      This variable specifies the GUID of the native COM profiler DLL. The CLR EE uses the registry to look up the profiler.

     

    I hope this answer your quesiton.

    They are environment in your windows server. 

    You can check them through Control Panel or Command Prompt using set
