Fixes

  • Fixes a bug where self-hosted WCF applications would not correctly report on the overview page.
  • Fixes a bug where database calls and external calls in a background/async thread would result in a transaction named * showing up in the Other bucket.
  • Fixes a bug where apdex was not reported for self-hosted WCF applications.
  • Fixes a bug where API calls from an application that didn't have any instrumentation would not report any data.
  • SQL object names are more accurately parsed. In particular, table names will be recognized with an expanded set of characters. The agent is able to parse table names with a variety of separator characters and formatting whitespace. For example, {Table1}, [ Table2 ], "Table3" and Table4.

Known Issues
