System Profile

This page describes how to set up a System Profile, which is the “workspace” where you administer a certain application environment.

A System Profile contains all configuration settings that belong to a certain set of AppMon Agents, which represent the system under diagnoses (SUD). When a new AppMon Agent connects to the AppMon Server, it is matched to exactly one System Profile. As a result, AppMon applies all configuration settings within the System Profile to the Agent.

System Profiles are listed in the AppMon Client cockpit and serve as one possible starting point for all interactive actions applied to the data. The data is provided by the AppMon Agents associated with the System Profile.

You can manage any number of System Profiles on one AppMon Server. To access the System Profile Preferences dialog box, right click the required system profile, and select Edit System Profiles from the context menu.

Operations on System Profiles

Create System Profile Manually create a new System Profile. You can also use a Wizard to create a System Profile. Only visible in context menu of the System Profiles node.
Edit System Profile Manually edit the System Profile.
Search PurePath Find a single PurePath by HTTP response header. Only visible in context menu of the System Profiles node.
Open Session Overview A new dashboard opens that contains the Transaction Flow Dashlet, PurePaths Dashlet, and Status Overview Dashlet.
Connect Application Guided creation of a new Agent Group within the System Profile.
Session Storage Manual session storage functions. See Session for more information.
Hot Sensor Placement Apply configuration changes to all connected AppMon Agents (if supported).
Synchronize Discovery Data On Collectors Reuse data gathered during the discovery run of this System Profile and deploy the information to other AppMon Collectors. All connected collectors immediately deploy. Collectors connecting in the future also use this information for initialization. This allows AppMon to rely on the data already collected by other AppMon Collectors and omit the Discovery run for new AppMon Collectors.
Enable disable a System Profile Activate or deactivate a System Profile. You can’t use disabled System Profiles for Agent Mapping.
Import System Profile Import a System Profile from a local XML file. Only visible in context menu of the System Profiles node.
Export System Profile Export the System Profile to a local XML file.
Rename System Profile Rename the System Profile.
Active Configuration Switch the currently active Configuration.

System Profile storage

System Profiles are stored as XML files on the AppMon Server in the folder <DT_HOME>\server\conf\profiles\<application_name>.profile.xml. To edit a System Profile, you must have a connection to the AppMon Server and the appropriate permissions You don’t have to run a SUD to define and edit System Profiles. See Server Administration for more information.
