Article ID: 40123
CA Application Performance Management Agent (APM / Wily / Introscope)INTROSCOPE
The Spydus application (third party library management solution) is hosted by IIS
There are multiple Spydus application/agent processes.
One Spydus application can be instrumented by the .NET agent but another running under FastCGI cannot i.e. no metrics are visible for that application in the Introscope Investigator.
.NET version 4.0 hosted on IIS 7.5
APM .NET Agent had installed with version 10.0.0.12 with OOTB configuration
The .NET Agent can monitor only those languages that conform to the Common Language Infrastructure (CLI), which compile entirely to the Common Intermediate Language (CIL) bytecode (formerly Microsoft Intermediate Language/MSIL) in order to run under the Common Language Runtime (CLR) e.g. C#.NET, VB.NET
The FastCGI implementation of Spydus is written in C++ which does not compile to CIL and thus cannot be instrumented by the .NET agent.
