  1. What version of SAP Diagnostic Agent should we use?  I plan on eventually getting Wily Introscope configured so I want to install the full Diagnostics Agent.  We have been using version 7.3 but I see there are several newer versions available.  Should we just go with the most recent release?

    1. Hi John,

      Diagnostics Agent 7.49 with latest SAP Host Agent 7.2.  Refer to 2. Downloading the required software and 4. Installing the Diagnostic Agent
