Verizon Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge – Data not available while on a call

 

Problem: Simultaneous voice and data wasn’t a problem on my S4, but since I picked up my S6 Edge yesterday whenever a call comes my phone tells me that data is no longer available.

Solution:

  1. Verify the “Advanced Calling 1.0” DH Voice feature is enabled on your line.
    1. you can do this yourself through the My Verizon Mobile app on the phone
    2. OR you can call *611 and have them put it on
  2. Verify the feature is enabled on the device
    1. Settings > Advanced Calling > Activate Advanced Calling (Screen shots below)
  3. Power cycle your phone

Note: It took a couple of power cycles and probably about 5-10 minutes for the setting to actually take and start working

 

Performance Monitoring for Atlassian Applications (JIRA, Confluence on Windows)

Who doesn’t want to know how their applications are performing? Here’s a quick way to start collecting data and analyzing it.

  1. Sign-up for a free New Relic account
  2. Download your New Relic java agent zip file to your server and extract. I placed mine in the “D:\Program Files” folder.
  3. Edit “D:\Program Files\newrelic\newrelic.yml”
    1. update the “license_key” and “app_name” variables
      1. note: the license_key is surrounded in ticks ” and app_name is not.
  4. Configure the java agent to start when the service starts
    1. start > run > regedit.exe
    2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Apache Software Foundation\Procrun 2.0\[App ID]\Parameters\Java
    3. edit “Options” by adding “-javaagent:D:\Program Files\newrelic\newrelic.jar” to the bottom
  5. Restart your application service

If your app doesn’t show up in the console check your logs! (D:\Program Files\newrelic\logs\newrelic_agent.log)
