Every AppDynamics event is an instance of one of the event types described in this topic. This topic does not include event types that are not currently used.

Viewing Events

The Events window in the AppDynamics console displays information about events. In the console these events are grouped into the following categories:

  • Health Rule Violations
  • Slow Transactions
  • Errors
  • Code Problem
  • Application Changes
  • AppDynamics Configuration Warnings
  • AppDynamics Internal Diagnostics
  • AppDynamics Data
  • Custom

You can view events and select the types of events you want to see reported in the Events page.  

To view standard events in the AppDynamics console

  1. In the left navigation panel click Events.
  2. If filters are hidden click Show Filters to see the event types.

Events of event types that are checked are displayed when they occur.

To retrieve events using the REST API

In addition to the standard event types, you can retrieve events of additional event types using the REST API. Pass the event types of events that you want to retrieve in the event-types parameter of the REST call. See Retrieve event data.

Tip: You can see a list of all event types in the Events panel if the UI is in debug mode. With the UI in debug mode, click the View Events (old) link and click Show Filters. Note that in the list, event types are identified by code identifier rather than their UI names. See Set User Preferences for information on setting debug mode.
