    Product or componentFunction
    Atrium Single Sign-On

    For user and tenant management and for authentication to the TrueSight console.

    Note: Atrium Single Sign-on can be installed on the same server with the TrueSight Presentation Server if necessary.

    For information about installing Atrium Single Sign-On, see Installing BMC Atrium Single Sign-On 9.0 .

    Presentation Server

    The Presentation Server provides monitoring functions, role-based access control, solution administration, and configuration for TrueSight App Visibility Manager, and TrueSight Infrastructure Management.

    For details about the installing the Presentation Server, see Installing the Presentation Server.

    TrueSight App Visibility Manager components


    Component

     Description

    App Visibility Server

    The App Visibility Server comprises an App Visibility portal and one or more App Visibility collectors. For more details, see Installing the App Visibility server components.

    • App Visibility portal

    The App Visibility portal manages App Visibility collectors. The App Visibility portal communicates with the associated App Visibility collectors to gather the application's synthetic transaction data to be sent to the Presentation Server.

    • App Visibility collector

    The App Visibility collector receives data from one or more TEA Agents. The App Visibility collector stores the data received from the agents. Each App Visibility collector has its own database.


    TrueSight Synthetic Monitor with Silk Performer components


    TrueSight Synthetic Monitor enables synthetic transaction monitoring so that specialists can predict application health and user experience. Synthetic transaction monitoring enables you to manage your applications by executing complex business transactions and monitoring performance and functional behavior.

    Component

     Description

    Silk Performer for TrueSight Operations Management

    Silk Performer is a utility that enables application specialists to record .ltz scripts that simulate user transactions.

    The scripting utility also serves as an execution module to run scripts on the computer with the Synthetic Transaction Execution Adapter (TEA) Agent.

    Either the full Silk Performer installation or the Silk Performer agent must be installed on every computer where the TEA Agent is installed.

    Note

     If you install Silk Performer for TrueSight Operations Management, it's not necessary to install the Silk Performer agent.

    See Silk Performer Installation Guide for more details.

    Synthetic Transaction Execution Adapter (TEA) Agent

    The Synthetic TEA agent runs synthetic scripts and transfers the results to the App Visibility collector.

    Multiple TEA Agents can be installed on the same computer.

    For installation instructions, see Installing a Transaction Execution Adapter Agent.

    1. What will be the source of the Event and flow of the event from the source for synthetic monitoring Events?  As here in above diagram, it shows the evtns are generated from TEA Agents and forwarded to APP VIS Portal, but i cant see any cell on the same so curious to know abotu the lifecycle to the events from synthetic.

    2.  AVM Events are managed and persisted in the AVM server.

      If event destination is configured in the  AVM component configuration in TSPS then the AVM Portal will send a notification event to the configured cell.

       Options:

      1)      External event manager cell

      2)      If TSIM is configured as component then should select the TSIM component as the event destination.  In this case, notification events will be sent to the TSIM cell.

      3) none
