Drilling Down from AppDynamics

Once you have completed the AppDynamics and AppDynamics for Databases integration, from within AppDynamics Pro you can follow the path from a transaction monitored by the App Agent for Java, App Agent for .Net, and App Agent for PHP,  through the database call and then down to AppDynamics for Databases to see the Activity page for the SQL that was running.

Note: If you have not already configured the AppDynamics for Databases collector for that specific database, you can provide the connection details in AppDynamics Pro, launch AppDynamics for Databases, and then setup and license the new database collector from within AppDynamics for Databases.
