In complex, large-scale applications, some application services may span multiple tiers. If you are an owner of an application service, you may need metrics on that specific service as opposed to metrics from across an entire business transaction or entire tier. Service endpoints allow you to obtain a subset of metrics and associated snapshots for your service so that you can focus on the information truly of interest to you. Using service endpoints, you can define a set of entry points into your specific service to create a customized view in the AppDynamics UI that displays the key performance indicators, associated snapshots, and metrics that affect only that service. You can understand the performance of your service and quickly drill down to snapshots that affect your service, instead of sifting through snapshots for the entire tier or business transaction.
