Configuring AppDynamics APM Integration

VirtualWisdom discovers/imports applications directly from both local and cloud instances of the AppDynamics controller, and creates applications only from existing Hosts, VMs, Microsoft Hyper-V VMs, and PowerVM Partitions that have been discovered by other VirtualWisdom integrations.

Steps

  1. Select an instance of a AppDynamics app (cloud or on-premise), and copy the URL.

  2. From the Settings tab, click Integrations in the Probes and Integrations section, and then click the View button for AppDynamics APM Integration.

    The AppDynamics APM Integration page is displayed.

  3. To specify a secure connection, click the Use SSL checkbox.

    If SSL is selected, the port defaults to 443. Otherwise, the default port is 8090.

  4. Paste the copied URL into the Controller FQDN field, specify Port (if overriding the default) and Account Name (to override the default customer1), and type your credentials in the Username and Password fields.

  5. Optional: Assign an AppDynamics APM Integration-discovered application to one or more VirtualWisdom tiers.

    VirtualWisdom Health notifications are not imported for any Server that is not a part of Tier/Node of an application in AppDynamics.

  6. Click Test Connection to verify that the specified URL and API Token can connect to the site successfully.

  7. Click Save and then Start Discovery.

    You can click Save at any time to save the current status of the operation.

    The specified AppDynamics APM Integration application is discovered. If scheduled discovery was specified (defaults to Enable), it begins as specified in the Discovery Time and Frequency section, similar to existing integrations.

    After you create an application, you can drill down into it to see topology, application components, and FC conversations.
