New Relic Infrastructure Agent 1.3.1

Released on: 
Monday, March 25, 2019 - 15:00

Notes

A new version of the agent has been released. Follow standard procedures to update your Infrastructure agent.

Improvements

  • Added HTTPS proxy certificate verification. You can enable it with the proxy_validate_certificates: true configuration option. When this option is set to true and you setup an HTTPS proxy with self-signed certificates, you may need to specify the certificates location with the ca_bundle_fileor ca_bundle_dir configuration options.
  • Added a Proxy Configuration Plugin that submits non-sensitive proxy configuration information as inventory. To disable it, set the proxy_config_plugin: false configuration option.
  • Warn on RPM plugin package parsing error.

Changes

  • Increased the intervals of some samplers
    • Increased ProcessSample default interval from 10 to 20
    • Increased StorageSample default interval from 5 to 20
    • Increased NetworkSample default interval from 5 to 10
  • When the configuration option startup_connection_retries is set to -1, the Agent, at startup, will keep checking forever the connectivity.
  • The configuration option startup_connection_retry_time has been removed and now the Agent uses an exponential backoff algorithm.
  • The Windows Agent does not ignore A: and B: drives anymore, as they may be mapped to actual Hard Disks. If those drives are reported because they map into a removable drive and you don't want the agent to report them, you can set the win_removable_drives: false configuration option.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a bug that may cause some configuration options to be ignored when settting via environment variables (e.g. NRIA_IGNORE_RECLAIMABLE or NRIA_PROXY_VALIDATE_CERTIFICATES)
  • Fixed a bug in the Linux agent that prevented the agent from loading the system root certificates when the ca_bundle_dir or ca_bundle_file options were specified. This bug can't be fixed in the Windows Agent so the user will need to place in the ca_bundle_dir a copy of the New Relic certificate.
