CA Application Performance Management Agent (APM / Wily / Introscope) INTROSCOPE


Your implementation has many applications that are composed of many components, which are distributed across many servers. As a result, your map has several hundreds of nodes (>700).
Using the default perspectives, the navigation is very slow, difficult and the nodes are not aggregated as you expect.
Also the UI continuous refreshes affect visibility and the overall performance of the Enterprise Manager.

You are looking for options about how to create better perspectives. For example, you need a perspective that aggregates the map based on Hostname, Agent Name and resource Type



Release: CEMUGD00200-10.1-Introscope to CA Application-Performance Management-Upgrade Mai


To create a new perspective based on Hostname, AgentName and Type resource, proceed as follow:
1. By default, the Agentname does not exist as an Attribute. From the menu, click the Settings icon, click Attribute rules, define a new attribute rule as below:

2. From the menu, select the first icon to go the map, click "Create a Perspective"

Define the levels of the perspective as per your requirements, giving it a meaningful name:

3. Review the results:
First level : all data in the map will be aggregated based on the hostname. Click the + to drill down to the next level

<Please see attached file for image>

Second level : all data in the map will be aggregated based on the hostname + agentname. Click the + to one of the nodes, to drill down to the next level

<Please see attached file for image>

Third Level: all data in the map will be aggregated based on the hostname + agentname + resource type

<Please see attached file for image>

Final level would be the resource type detail level. In this example, you will see all the webservices for the specific application.

You might find useful to create the below additional perspectives:
