I’m looking for the exact same functionality of https://docs.newrelic.com/docs/infrastructure/install-configure-manage-infrastructure/configuration/infrastructure-configuration-settings#hostname-variables
(override_hostname, override_hostname_short, display_name, dns_hostname_resolution)
I have the infrasructure agent running on 2 EC’s and it works great – I have the names separated out using the attributes above.
I have not yet been able to get this to display the same way for the .net agent. For my application under the APM servers tab/Hosts section, the machine is always the same. It does show “2 app instances” however. These EC2’s have the same computer name, so I suppose this makes sense.
I do want to be able to show “server1” and “server2” under the servers tab, and hosts section for the application though.
I had tried using the configuration element to change the processhost, and this does show up as a prettier name, but the same problem exists where only one of these names shows up.
How do I get the same functionality of the infrastructure agent, for the .net agent? I need to be able to see and differentiate these hosts.
