.NET Agent 8.31.0.0

Released on: 
Monday, August 17, 2020 - 12:00

New Features

  • Expected Errors Support
    Certain errors that are expected within the application may be identified so that they will not be counted towards the application's error rate and Apdex Score. Only errors that truly affect the health of the application will be alerted on. Please review the following documentation for details on how to configure Expected Errors.

  • Ignored Errors Enhancements
    Certain errors may be identified in configuration so that they will be ignored. These errors will not be counted towards the application's error rate, Apdex score, and will not be reported by the agent. Please review the following documentation for details on how to configure Ignored Errors.

    • New configuration element <ignoreMessages>supports filtering based on the error message.
    • Please note that the <ignoreErrors> configuration element has been deprecated and replaced by <ignoreClasses>. The .NET Agent continues to support this configuration element, but its support may be removed in the future.

Fixes

  • Garbage Collection Performance Metrics for Windows
    Fixes an issue where Garbage Collection Performance Metrics may not be reported for Windows Applications.

  • Maintaining newrelic.config on Linux package upgrades
    Fixes an issue where newrelic.config was being overwritten when upgrading the agent via either rpm/yum (RedHat/Centos) or dpkg/apt (Debian/Ubuntu).
