I’m very pleased to announce the availability of “async mode” in the .NET Agent! Async mode, which now provides asynchronous instrumentation for HttpClient and HttpWebRequest, is available as of version 184.108.40.206 and is activated via a feature flag.
Why a feature flag?
Not all of the agent’s core features are yet available while the agent is in async mode, so please read the list of features that will be disabled before you activate the feature flag.
Why would I want to activate it?
Async mode provides a look at the agent’s asynchronous framework instrumentation as it becomes available. At the moment, this is HttpClient and HttpWebRequest.
Is this supported, or is this just a beta?
This is a fully supported feature, on par with all of our other agent functionality. As such, our normal support policy and procedures apply.
Ok, let’s see it. How do I activate it?
Details are here, in our documentation:
I tried it out and I have some feedback, do you want to hear it?
You bet we do! We’ve made this available now because we want you to try it out and let us know what you think. Your input shapes our product!
