During the BRTM troubleshooting, the response cookies may need to be disabled to prevent impact on some applications.
How to disable BRTM response cookies and what is the impact on metrics.
APM 10.1 (HotFix). Planned for APM 10.4.
Browser Agent enabled
For above APM 10.x Browser Agent, there is a new property to disable/enable Browser Agent cookie insertion in Agent Profile.
After the cookie insertion is disabled the Browser Agent will not use response cookies between the browser client and the application server. For a list of those response cookies see wiki page: CA APM 10.1 > Implementing Agents > Browser Agent > Advanced Browser Agent Configuration
The impact of disabling the response cookies is :
1. BRTM metrics will show up in different path and without browser info (i.e. no CEM integration so as per BT unmatched BRTM metrics). So instead of:
Business Segment | <Business_Service>| <Business_Transaction> via Chrome | <Business_Transaction_Component> | Browser | <Browser_Metrics>
It will be:
Business Segment | <Host>/<Port> | <URL> | <Browser_Metrics>
2. BRTM will not be involved in Transaction Tracing and will not send traces.
