Relic Solution: Profiler Log Says "This process (. . .) is not configured to be instrumented."


This post is part of a series of posts designed to guide you through troubleshooting common issues in the .NET agent. For more context, please see <Troubleshooting with .NET agent log files>. If you were linked here directly, you should also take a look at the post I just linked to in order to make sure you’re looking at the log files that represent the application you are trying to monitor.

The issue

  • The .NET agent profiler log for your application’s process says This process (Path\To\Your\EXE) is not configured to be instrumented..

What it means.

  • The .NET agent has not been configured to target your application for monitoring.
  • The .NET agent does not target this type of application by default.
  • This most often occurs when trying to monitor non-IIS “service” applications.

The solution

Configure the agent to target your application. This can be done in one of the following ways.

  1. Edit the global newrelic.config file (C:\ProgramData\New Relic\.NET Agent\newrelic.config) and add the following as a child of the <configuration> element:
      <application name="YourExecutibleName.exe" />
  1. Edit your application’s app-config file (YourExecutibleName.exe.config) to include the following:
    <add key="NewRelic.AgentEnabled" value="true" />
