AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform
Code metrics capture how a method is performing. For example:
AppDynamics gathers code metrics using information points. Information points instrument methods in your application code outside the context of a particular business transaction. Use them when you need to track data from the same method across multiple business transactions.
To access the Information Points List, in the left navigation pane click Analyze -> Information Points.
The Information Point List summarizes metrics for all the information points in an application.
Code metrics appear in the Information Points tree of the Metric Browser and can be accessed from the AppDynamics REST API, just like any other metric. See To Copy the REST URL for a Metric.
From the Information Points List you can:
You can configure snapshots to display information point invocations in call graphs by setting the enable-info-point-data-in-snapshots node property to true. By default the property is false. See App Agent Node Properties.
When the enable-info-point-data-in-snapshots node property is set, information point calls appear in the User Data section of the call graph.
You define an information point based on the class and method signature of the method being monitored. See Configure Code Metric Information Points.
You can then create a custom health rule based on the performance of such a custom metric. See Health Rules.
