Linking to DB CAM from AppDynamics
You can link to DB CAM from any AppDynamics flow map that displays a discovered DB CAM-monitored database. The flow map could be in a dashboard or a transaction snapshot.
If you link to DB CAM from a dashboard you will land in the DB CAM instance dashboard. If you link to be DB CAM from a transaction snapshot, you will land in the DB CAM Session Drill Down screen.
