I find this information confusing;
So looking at the version numbers of NewRelic agents we’re using mostly 1.0.976, which seems to be in support for another ~2 years.
As nothing like this is mentioned in the article, this made me think maybe our NewRelic agent is written in one of those languages, however when I list the package’s dependencies it seems to only require a shell…
~]$ rpm -qR newrelic-infra
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
We have a multi-OS environment, will I need to try this type of thing for every server? For all I know the Windows agent uses Java or .NET, or our Debian servers use php, or even a different language depending on it’s version. I’d not like to have to check every server to see what language the NR agent thinks it’s using and check the version of that language. I run the suggested NRSL check it lists no issues but it also says this information is not complete.
Some advice or clarification would be appreciated.
