    TrueSight Synthetic Monitor installation components

    ComponentDescriptionInstallation notesReference
    TrueSight Presentation ServerThe Presentation Server is the hub of the operations management environment; it receives and analyzes data that is displayed in the TrueSight console.

    Install the Presentation Server first.

    Installing the Presentation Server

    App Visibility serverThe App Visibility server comprises the following components: 
    • Portal
    • Collector

    The server receives and analyzes data from the TEA Agents that run your Execution Plans.

    The portal and the collector installations each include a database: one for configuration and connection information on the portal; and one for the App Visibility Manager data on the collector.

    Typically, the App Visibility environment uses a separate computer for the portal and one or more collectors To set up a high-availability environment, you must install each component on a separate computer.

    Install the portal before the collectors because the collectors reference the portal during installation.

    After you install the App Visibility server components, configure the connection between the systems on the Component Management page of the TrueSight console.
