Reading the blog and help, I have still a question about the AIX full stack mode.
To put is simple, full stack means, execute the extra steps described in the help page? This means that plainly installing the Agent is basically infra mode and will gray-out the infra/full stack slider on the host viiew?
Or installing the agent in full/infra has no real meaning in AIX,
Solved! Go to Solution.
You still need manual instrumentation as written in the documentation to get the full visibility into applications (Java processes, HTTP servers, etc. ). There is an early access program for automatic instrumentation on AIX that will work similarly to Linux and Windows. For details, see this blog post:
In the infrastructure mode you don't get any visibility into processes, only OS monitoring and basic process metrics (e.g. no services will be detected or monitored).
Full-stack means, there is code instrumentation happening and you get PurePaths (tracing), service monitoring. If you install the OneAgent in the full-stack mode on AIX, the license for a full-stack agent will be consumed even if you did not make any manual instrumentation.
