What Operating systems does it run on?
The Runtime agent is fully supported and tested in the following platforms:
Windows 95, 98, 2000 and NT.
I have developed a Java-based agent. At some point, I decide to convert my agent into a C based one for various reasons. How much work is involved in making this agent totally functional?
If you have built a agent in JAVA and if you would like to make it a 'C' agent, then you have to do the instrumentation again. Suppose your instrumentation is in native and you have used JNI from the JAVA agent to access data, then converting your agent to 'C' is simple because instead of invoking JNI calls from instrumentation ( in JAVA agent ), you will invoke those calls from the 'C' instrumentation directly.
Does your agent support Thread? Or is your agent thread safe?
Yes, our runtime processes the requests in threads. It is thread safe.
Does your agent support database ?
Yes, our agent supports to store the table value in database. The supported databases are Oracle, MySQL, and MS-ACCESS.
