This topic describes how you can you link to AppDynamics for Databases (AppD4DB) from a monitored database, server, or storage system (NetApp) that is discovered by AppDynamics and supported by AppD4DB. This integration provides access to the deep database performance metrics provided by AppD4DB.
Prerequisites for AppDynamics for Databases Integration
- To use this integration you must have an AppD4DB license.
- AppDynamics for Databases must be configured to monitor the databases that you want to link to from AppDynamics.
- In addition, if you are installing AppD4DB and the AppDynamics controller on the same host, you may need to change the port number AppD4DB uses because the default port number for both products is 8090. We recommend that you use port 9090. For information about changing the port number on AppD4DB, see Install AppDynamics for Databases and AppDynamics Controller on the Same Host.
See Linking to AppDynamics for Databases, and Integrate and Use AppDynamics for Databases with AppDynamics Pro for information on how to access AppD4DB from the Controller UI.
See the AppDynamics for Databases documentation for information about using AppD4DB.
