Installing Applications Monitoring plug-in

Check our installation guide to know the steps to install Applications Monitoring plug-in.

Once you download and install APM plugin, you will be able to access in depth application monitoring data in OpManager's console. The Applications tab provides detailed insights on the list of applications monitored, the associated monitors, the cloud applications supported in your network environment, alarms and reports generated for application monitoring.

Formerly, all application monitoring information was given under the Applications tab. However, to enable easier access and better correlation of APM data, options to view application monitoring data in Inventory, Virtualization, Widgets, Reports and Alarms have been provided.

Inventory

The Inventory tab provides a comprehensive list of devices and interfaces monitored in OpManager. In addition to that, a sub tab for application under Inventory has been introduced.

This tab classifies the application monitoring data and gives the list of applications with their availability status, category, discovered time etc. You can use the Add Application button to discover and monitor applications running on your network.

Virtualization

With the APM plugin you can monitor the containers that are extensively used such as Kubernetes, OpenShift and Docker. Under the virtualization tab, a separate tab for monitoring your containers is provided.

You can add containers for monitoring using the Add Container option available at the top right corner. (You can also add container by navigating to Settings --> Add Container). It takes you to a dedicated page for Container Discovery, where you can specify the details, choose the vendor (Kubernetes/ OpenShift/Docker) and add it into OpManager with just few clicks.

Application monitoring widgets in Dashboard

OpManager's Dashboard provides a consolidated picture of your entire network health with the help of customizable widgets. In addition to existing set of widgets, application monitoring widgets that cover monitoring data specific to the APM plugin has been introduced in the Dashboard. The APM widgets will be enabled only for users who have downloaded and installed the APM plugin.

List of supported APM widgets:

  • Application Monitors Summary
  • Application Monitors Status
  • Application Health and Availability
  • Application Monitors HeatMap
  • Application Monitor Groups Summary
  • Application Monitor Groups Tree view

Alarms

All alarms raised for application events can be synced with OpManager using the Sync All Alarms option in Application Manager plugin page (Settings--> General Settings--> Third party integrations). Once this sync option is enabled all APM related alarms can be viewed under the All Alarms tab.

Also, a dedicated tab for Application alarms has also been introduced under the Alarms view to list down only the APM alarms.

APM plugin data under Reports

A new category for Applications is added under the Reports tab (this tab will appear only for users who have installed the APM plugin).  Under this tab, all application monitoring data is categorized into separate reports such as Application Servers, Cloud apps, Converged infrastructure, mail servers and more.
