OverOps for .NET

Important

The .NET Micro-Agent is currently only supported in pre-production environments.

Introduction

The OverOps .NET Micro-Agent monitors .NET applications by attaching to a running application or environment, detecting errors and problems, thereby providing you with a comprehensive view of your application's performance.

To this end, OverOps developed a Common-language Runtime Profiler (CLRP) that enables it to expand its installation capabilities and to enable customers to install OverOps using a .NET-based installation. In addition to the CLRP, the .NET installation includes a number of parameters that are required to run the CLRP properly. Like the Java-based installation, the .NET-based installation is straightforward and requires a limited number of steps.

The CLRP is a dynamic link library (DLL), which is comprised of functions that receive messages from and send messages to the CLR by using the profiling API. The CLRP DLL is loaded by the CLR during runtime. The profiling API provides information about a variety of events, actions, and logged errors that occur in the CLR. OverOps uses this information to analyze execution code in real-time.

The .NET Micro-Agent supports both .NET Framework and .NET Core, installs as a standalone on your laptop and works with Azure- Server, PC, and cloud - Azure AppService - through NuGet. The Micro-Agent can also be installed with a remote machine (using NuGet or MSI).

Important

Note that OverOps requires 64-bit operating systems.
