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 Borland 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

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.

Borland Silk Performer SDK

Execution module to run scripts on the computer with the BMC Synthetic Transaction Execution Adapter (TEA) Agent

Note

 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.

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

  5. Do we need to install TEA agent on target computer (web server)?

    Can we install app visibility collector and portal on same machine?

  6. Hello Babar Shamsi,

    1. The TEA Agent does not need to be on the same computer as the web server. You can install it on any supported OS, the only required component on the same computer as the TEA Agent is the Silk SDK - https://docs.bmc.com/docs/display/public/TSOMD105/TEA+Agent+system+requirements
    2. You can install Portal and Collector on same machine however it is recommended to install them separately.
      you can read some more on this here (second paragraph) - Installing the App Visibility server components
