The AppDynamics application performance management (APM) system can be configured as an external data source for performance intelligence within CloudTest, TouchTest, or mPulse.
Once configured, an external data source appears in the Dashboards, Widget Type list as a separate external data node. AppDynamics widgets can be added to dashboards alongside other dashboard widgets. The SOASTA dashboards present aggregate data at any capacity supported by the user’s AppDynamics credentials.
External data charts from AppDynamics are presented in real-time, like any other charts, and can be viewed from a point in time, such as the time frame of a result, or a specific relative or absolute time range.
Integrating with AppDynamics
In order to access AppDynamics data from SOASTA CloudTest, TouchTest, or mPulse, we must be able to access the AppDynamics Controller directly.
Refer to Monitoring a Server Behind a Firewall for instructions if the server is not directly accessible.
The External Data Sources dialog box appears.
|The configured AppDynamics server is added to the External Data Sources list in Central. Additionally, External Data appears as a new entry in the Check Server tree alongside other CloudTest services. Check Server(s) is viewed from within the Central > Servers and Server Instances lists using the lower panel Check Server(s) tab. When check server is run, the External Data Source is checked along with all the others.|
