Measures in AppMon are metrics, or data points, collected and recorded in the AppMon Performance Warehouse either periodically or based on transactions. Measures are used for long-term charting, trend analysis, and as the basis for configuring incidents.

The following types of measures provide insight into your environment and infrastructure:

  • Agent-based measures such as Host and Agent.
  • Monitor-based measures for hardware, operating systems, servers, and databases.

You can also create custom Agent measures based on an out-of-the-box measure type and specify settings that are specific to this new measure. You can then use these measures for charting and split the measure data by agent.
