|Product or component||Function|
|BMC Atrium Single Sign-On|
For user and tenant management and for authentication to the TrueSight console.
Note: BMC Atrium Single Sign-on can be installed on the same server with the TrueSight Presentation Server if necessary.
For information about installing BMC Atrium Single Sign-On, see .
The Presentation Server provides monitoring functions, role-based access control, solution administration, and configuration for BMC TrueSight App Visibility Manager, and BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management.
For details about the installing the Presentation Server, see .
|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.
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.
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 enables 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.
|Borland Silk Performer for TrueSight|
Borland 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 BMC Synthetic Transaction Execution Adapter (TEA) Agent.
Either Silk Performer for TrueSight or the Silk Performer SDK must be installed on every computer where the TEA Agent is installed.

Execution module to run scripts on the computer with the BMC Synthetic Transaction Execution Adapter (TEA) Agent
If you install Silk Performer for TrueSight, it's not necessary to install the Silk Performer SDK.
See Silk Performer SDK Installation Guide for more details.
BMC 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.
