The following table lists application server metrics that can be displayed in the Application View. If a metric exceeds a threshold, the tier in the Application View changes color and the problem is displayed on the Problems tab for the tier member.

Example of the Web tier, Problems tab

Some metrics are platform dependent (Java servers or .NET servers), but most are from both platforms.

You can configure threshold values that are listed as editable in the Application Configuration page.
