 Introduction:

 You can use URL Groups to monitor browser response time for sets of requests whose path prefix begins with a string that you define. Introscope aggregates metrics for each URL group and presents those metrics under the Frontends|Apps|<ApplicationName>|URLs node of the Investigator metric browser tree.



 Question:

 Is there any way to exclude GIFs, JPGs, and other image files from Frontends|Apps|<ApplicationName>|URLs?



Environment: 

APM 9.x, APM 10.x



 Answer:

 Unfortunately, there is no "exclude" option.

 You could try setting these URL Groupings that will put all image files into an /images group and place all other URLs into the "Default" group:

introscope.agent.urlgroup.keys=png,bmp,jpg,gif,tiff,default
introscope.agent.urlgroup.group.jpg.pathprefix=*.jpg
introscope.agent.urlgroup.group.jpg.format=/images
introscope.agent.urlgroup.group.bmp.pathprefix=*.bmp
introscope.agent.urlgroup.group.bmp.format=/images
introscope.agent.urlgroup.group.gif.pathprefix=*.gif
introscope.agent.urlgroup.group.gif.format=/images
introscope.agent.urlgroup.group.png.pathprefix=*.png
introscope.agent.urlgroup.group.png.format=/images
introscope.agent.urlgroup.group.tiff.pathprefix=*.tiff
introscope.agent.urlgroup.group.tiff.format=/images
introscope.agent.urlgroup.group.default.pathprefix=*
introscope.agent.urlgroup.group.default.format=Default

 

 With the above configuration, all the images will show under Frontends|Apps|<application>|/images, all other URLs will show under Frontends|Apps|application>|Default.
