Diagnostics 9.5x Java agent support for CentOS & Ubuntu

Diagnostics 9.5x Java agent support for CentOS & Ubuntu

Submitted on behalf of large Financial institution in the US, they rely on Diagnostics extensively to monitor, trace & measure various JVMs probes in heterogenous environment. Recently they added Centos/Ubuntu OS to their infrastructure (dropping Redhat EL) and have applications that need to be instrumented with Java probes. they are requesting to Micro Focus to include CentOS/Ubuntu as supported platforms.

As seem indicated in Java Agent Guide, that all Unix platfroms supported in chapter 3 : Installing and Configuring Java Agents
Step 1: Obtain the Installation Package
   For All other platforms, including AIX, HPUX, Linux, or Solaris:
    - DiagJavaAgent_<release number>.zip        or     - DiagJavaAgent_<release number>.tgz  

 We need a formal statement about supportability of Java agent on CentOS/Ubuntu so that Diagnostics remain relevant in this customer site.

Thanks for submitting the request for Ubuntu and CentOS. For making a decission on this request, we need to know the exact OS versions you required us to certify. Additionally which OS has the higher priority.

Customer using CentOS Linux release 7.6.1810 (Core) and  Ubuntu 18.04, I'd say CentOS is more urgent.

Thanks
