 Introduction: 

 This article helps with your customization when integrating a custom metric under the CA-APM / CA-SOI Catalyst environment.

 Environment:  

 Introscope 9.1x, 9.5x
 CA-SOI 3.3.2

 

Instructions: 

 How to integrate the following metrics between the products:

 APM Catalyst connector side

     1. Configuration of the extensions is controlled via the “APMConnector_ScopingConfig.xml” file, which is placed in the <SOI>/resources path when unzipping the extensions .zip

 Using the above example, would leave as:

<MetricGroup path="PerfmonCollectorAgent.exe|Perfmon|TCPv4(.*)Connections Established" ciFilterExp=".*" name="ManagementModule"/>

Under

     2. APM_MetricGroupConfig_<EM_Host>.xml

By using above example, set the parameters as follows:

<metricGroup>
<apmmetricgroup>
<apmmmname>Sample</apmmmname>
<apmmetricgroupname>Perfmon Connections Established</apmmetricgroupname>
</apmmetricgroup>
<cigroupname>TCPvCEMetric</cigroupname>
<cilabel>TCPv4 Connections Established Metric</cilabel>
<cidescription>CE metrics for Perfmon TCPv4 match</cidescription>
<cigrouptype>Perfmon</cigrouptype>
</metricGroup>

APM Introscope side

     1. Under your Management Module from the metric chosen under Investigator or Webview Console, set this Metric to "Use Metric Grouping Agent Expressions" and add the below row by matching with the desired Metrics, in this case would be:

Metric Grouping Agent Expressions
(.*)\|PerfmonCollectorAgent.exe|Perfmon

Metric Expression
TCPv4(.*)Connections Established
