Java Web Requests sensor


In AppMon 2017 May the AppMon Agent does not support this sensor.

The Java Web Requests Sensor allows tracing of PurePaths across thread and process boundaries for HTTP. The Sensor continues tracing when HTTP requests, including redirects, are made. It also traces relevant information about these connections. The sensor captures the URI, query, method, and response code of the HTTP request/response. It causes low overhead impact.

Sensor Configuration

To edit the System Profile specific settings, open the System Profile Preferences dialog box and select Agent Group/tier with Java technology > Sensor Configuration and then select the Java Web Requests item in the Sensor Configuration list.

AppMon truncates captured web requests to the specified length. Specify the required length in the edit box. All exceeding characters are cut.

URI filter

You can also filter captured queries by URI. There are two possible scenarios:

  • Capture listed URIs only.
  • Capture all URIs, except for the listed ones.

Select the appropriate option button and list URIs to be included/excluded from the capture.

Depending of the size of the configured rules list, the impact of the sensor on Agent overhead may increase.
