AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform
This topic introduces .NET entry points and the way that they are used in business transaction detection. If the auto-discovered entry points don't include all your critical business transactions, use custom match rules to customize entry point discovery.
AppDynamics detects entry points in the following places:
If the agent detects an entry point on the originating tier, it registers a business transaction with the Controller. The Controller displays the business transaction in the Business Transactions List. If an entry point correlates to an upstream exit point, such as an exiting service call, the agent includes it as part of the existing business transaction.
If you need to monitor transactions not automatically discovered by the App Agent for .NET, you can customize entry point detection. See Organizing Traffic as Business Transactions to learn how to plan your business transactions. After you have identified the critical business transactions for your application, create custom match rules for them to enable transaction detection.
1. Click Configure > Instrumentation > Transaction Detection.
2. Click the .NET - Transaction Detection tab.
3. From the Select Application or Tier list at the left, click either:
4. Use the Custom Match Rules pane to add and remove business transaction match rules.
