Agent Group - Agent Mapping

Define name patterns to match differently named Agents to a specific Agent Group.

The Agent name may be sufficient to assign an Agent to the Agent Group, but in some cases it is useful. For example, using the Agent's host to assign an Agent to an Agent Group.

To match agent names and host names, use starts, ends, contains, equals and also regex, to specify a Java-style regular expression that is evaluated against the Agent name to decide if the Agent matches this system profile.

How agent mapping works

AppMon searches all System Profiles for matching Agent Mapping definitions if a new Agent connects to the AppMon Server. The following cases may occur:

Case Description
No matching System Profile found, whether disabled or non-existant. The AppMon Agent is connected but instrumentation is disabled. An incident is raised: AppMon Self Monitoring - Ambiguous Agent Mapping
One matching System Profile found. The AppMon Agent is connected and the matching System Profile is applied.
More than one matching System Profile found, implying there are overlapping mapping definitions. The AppMon Agent is connected and the first matching System Profile is applied. An incident is raised: AppMon Self Monitoring - Ambiguous Agent Mapping

Advanced settings

You can dynamically configure Agents that match this Agent Mapping. See Agent Mapping Advanced Settings to learn how.
