Issue/Introduction

After installing the webservers monitoring bundle in the CA APM Infrastructure Agent to montor some Apache servers, it is reporting status and performance.
The Web Servers also appear as TeamCenter nodes.

But the relationship between webservers and WebSphere applications is missing, even though the applications are monitored by the CA APM Java Agent.

In the documentation it is necesssary to configure X-Forwarded headers. 

In this configuration scenario, there is  Apache->Websphere with Websphere plugin, it uses a mod_was_ap22_http.so module and plugin configuration in XML format.

As a result, there is no ProxyPass in the Apache configuration so the configuration is different, how can this be achieved ?

Environment

Release:
Component: APMAGT

Resolution

In this scenario, the headers are added by configuration in httpd.conf by adding the following:

a. To load module mod_headers.so, enable/uncomment the following in httpd.conf

LoadModule headers_module modules/mod_headers.so

b. The X-Forwarded-For and X-Forwarded-Host values also need to be added to httpd.conf as shown below. Enter the actual IP and hostname for the Apache web server.

RequestHeader append X-Forwarded-For <web server IP address>

RequestHeader append X-Forwarded-Host <web server host name>
