OneAgent and ActiveGate release notes version 1.169
IBM Integration Bus
- Improved error handling in IIB message flows by supporting thrown exceptions and TryCatch nodes.
Added support for NGINX 1.11.5+ on Linux PPC-LE
Added support for all POSIX-compliant user and group names to full-stack OneAgent installer for Linux, thus making it possible to also use dots, underscores, and hyphens.
Removed a number of smaller issues and improved the overall resiliency of the OneAgent installer.
OneAgent support changes
Dynatrace OneAgent support of the following platforms and components will be discontinued within the next 6 months
- Oracle Hotspot JVM v10 (non‑LTS). Oracle discontinued Premium Support in September 2018. Please consult the Oracle support matrix for further details. OneAgent version 1.169 will be the last version that supports Oracle Hotspot JVM v10.
OpenJDK v10 (non‑LTS). Oracle discontinued Premium Support in September 2018. Red Hat, the primary supporter of OpenJDK, has never officially supported OpenJDK v10. OneAgent version 1.169 will be the last version that supports OpenJDK v10.
PHP 5.6 support has been extended and will reach end-of-life in November 2019.
- Pivotal Platform PAS version v2.2.x (Pivotal support for this version ended in April 2019. Please consult Pivotal's support matrix for further details.) OneAgent version 1.171 will be the last version that supports Pivotal Platform version 2.2.x.
Cloud Platform support
Cloud Foundry Gorouter metrics are now also available on Process group pages (as Technology-specific metrics).
Cloud Foundry Auctioneer metrics are available on process group pages as well as process group instance pages. You'll find Auctioneer metrics on each Process group instance page under Further details.
It's now possible to use custom Truststore files for Cloud Foundry integration (see details below in the ActiveGate section).
- We’ve extended full-stack visibility into
containerdcontainers for Kubernetes environments.
Dynatrace fully supports vanilla Kubernetes 1.14 clusters with underlying Docker, containerd and CRI-O container runtimes on Linux.
Introducing management zones for Kubernetes clusters. Management zones can be used to control access to Kubernetes cluster pages.
The node analysis filter allows for filtering by problem impact.
It's now possible to use custom Truststore files for the Kubernetes integration (see details below in the ActiveGate section).
- ActiveGate can now be configured to use a custom TrustStore file. All you need to do is:
- Add the SSL certificate to your private TrustStore file (for example,
sslActiveGate subdirectory (for example,
- Adapt your
custom.propertiesfile by adding the following configuration:
- Add the SSL certificate to your private TrustStore file (for example,
1[collector]2trustedstore = mytrust.jks3# the following entries are optional4trustedstore-password = changeit5trustedstore-type = JKS
Ensure that the certificate validation wasn't disabled in
custom.properties. Note that certification validation is enabled by default.
1[http.client.external]2hostname-verification = yes3certificate-validation = yes
You can find further details in the Customize ActiveGate properties section.
ActiveGate support changes
Here are the de-support plans for ActiveGate
OneAgent version 1.177 will be the last version to support only 32-bit host IDs. By that time, all ActiveGates older than version 1.144 will need to be upgraded to the newer releases in order to properly support OneAgent 64 bit IDs. Failure to do this will result in OneAgent being unable to communicate with the Dynatrace Cluster via these older versions of ActiveGate. Other than that, this change will be completely transparent.
