Class Browser

The Class Browser provides a convenient way to define Class, Method and Memory rules. A tree view shows the package/namespace structure of the classes loaded by the SUDs of a certain Agent Group. If more than one AppMon Collector is connected to the AppMon Server, the Class Browser tries to use class data delivered from the one AppMon Collector that appears to have the most recent data.

This behavior is sufficient in most cases but there may be situations where the wrong AppMon Collector is used for the user's purposes. In such cases, you can request all data from all connected AppMon Collectors. To do this, select the use classes of all connected agents option and refresh the view.

Important

When you enable the use classes of all connected agents option, a refresh may take several minutes as the data is requested from all connected AppMon Collectors.

To access Class Browser:

  1. Open the System Profile Preferences dialog box and click Sensor Packs.
  2. Select the required Memory Sensor group and click Browse.

The renewed Class Browser provides search functionality, allowing you to find the required classes or methods easier.
