AppDynamics hosts a Geo Server that resolves the user's geographic location based on the request's reported IP address. You may prefer to host your own Geo Server if:
- You have intranet applications where the public IP address does not provide meaningful location information but the user's private IP does.
- You have a hybrid application where some users access the application from a private location and some access it from a public one. If a user doesn't come from a specific private IP range mapped by the custom geo server, the system can be set to default to the public Geo Server.
See Install and Host a Custom Geo Server for Browser RUM for more information on setting up your own Geo Server and private IP mapping file.
The AppDynamics Geo Server requires JDK 7 or higher.
