This page provides an overview of infrastructure monitoring in AppDynamics.
While business transaction performance is typically the focus of a performance monitoring strategy, infrastructure performance provides insight into underlying factors of business transaction performance. Infrastructure Visibility provides visibility into the underlying OS infrastructure and networks on which your applications run. These agents enable you to isolate, identify, and troubleshoot infrastructure problems that can affect application performance such as resource-hogging tiers.
AppDynamics provides preconfigured application infrastructure metrics and default health rules to enable you to discover and correct infrastructure problems. You can also configure additional persistent metrics to implement a monitoring strategy for your application architecture and business needs.
In addition to health rules, you can view infrastructure metrics in the Metric Browser.and charts in the browser are particularly useful in undersatnding how infrastructure metrics correlate to business transaction performance.
