While any user can view application data and drill down to diagnose the root cause of a problem, no data is available until applications are in the system. An application specialist can manually create applications through BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management, or use the automatically generated applications through BMC TrueSight App Visibility Manager:
From the Applications page (Monitoring > Applications) in the TrueSight console, you can see a high-level, real-time view of all your applications. You can weigh applications by importance (high, medium, low) or view them by the severity of the application events (critical, major, minor, warning, info, OK).
Example of the Applications page, sorted by importance
You can also set up dashlets to more closely monitor specific applications. From the , select one or more of the following dashlets:
(App Visibility Manager) Application View: Monitors the health and performance of live traffic and synthetic executions of an application
(App Visibility Manager or Infrastructure Management) Applications: Displays the applications that you select
Select an application to delve into information and events that are all in the context of that application.
(App Visibility Manager) The acquires data from App Visibility Manager to present a holistic end-to-end view of an application. The Application View represents the selected application's logical architecture. Each tier represents the aggregated performance and availability of its member types: real users, synthetic executions, network, and back-end tiers.
With the Application View, you can pinpoint the application, date, time, and problem that you want to investigate.
The application model acquires data from Infrastructure Management, App Visibility Manager, or both, to display a topological application model and quickly help determine the probable cause of impacting events.
(Infrastructure Management) You can view and data from Infrastructure Management and App Visibility to display the events and devices that are associated with the specific application.
