What You Will Learn In the Administrator Course

The half-day Administrators course is designed for users who want to understand how to maintain their on-premise controller not the cloud-based SaaS controller. This course can be taken as a 3.5 hour virtual training, or as an extension to our Power Users Learning Track. Students explore real-world application issues, and learn to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot applications with the AppDynamics platform. Additionally, students learn how to optimize agent administration and AppDynamics Controller work for your unique business case. Learn how to find performance issues quickly, and trace them back to code segments that cause them.

Unique to the Administrator Course is the special focus on the AppDynamics Controller and agents. Please note, private schedules of this course includes a special demonstration of the customer’s installed AppDynamics Controller’s configuration. Public courses do not include this offering.

Who is this course for?

This Administrator Course is designed for students who already have some understanding of AppDynamics. AppDynamics University recommends the following courses as a prerequisites: Power Users Learning Track, Developer Learning Track, Operator Learning Track

Users needing to be an advanced user should attend this course. Going beyond Operator or Developer course and including special Controller configuration and user management topics, including user and root password management, this half-day course empowers an administrator to oversee, manage, and customize the AppDynamics platform.

Every enterprise that depends on application performance needs an AppDynamics champion in-house, and there is no quicker route to becoming one than through an administrator course.
