System Profile

A System Profile is a container for all configuration settings that belong to a certain set of Agents, representing the system under diagnoses (SUD). When a new 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 serve as one possible starting point for all interactive actions applied to the data. The data is provided by the Agents associated with the System Profile. You can manage any number of System Profiles on one AppMon Server. You can find the list of System Profiles:

  • AppMon 2017 May In the Cockpit.
  • AppMon 2018 April and later In the Session selector.

System Profile storage

System Profiles are stored as XML files on the AppMon Server in the folder <DT_HOME>\server\conf\profiles\<system_profile_name>.profile.xml. To edit a System Profile, you must have a connection to the AppMon Server and the appropriate permissions.

Note

Administer System Profiles within a version control system.
