    Hi everyone,
    I have to monitor a application build in Genexus, and I need to know how do that.

    Hello Martin,

    I found this related to Genexus: GeneXus - Wikipedia 

    and they state "The languages for which code can be generated include C#, COBOL, Java including Android and BlackBerry smart devices, Objective-C for Apple mobile devices, RPG, Ruby, Visual Basic, and Visual FoxPro.[2]"

    Do you know any related to the generated App?

    Hello Harold,

    The application was generated in java.

    Hello Martin,

    it must has an starting java command.

    Is it running on *nix or Windows?

    use process explorer in Windows to retrieve the path.

    ps -fea | grep java on *nix to get the java uploading it

    Add the agent parameters to make it report to the EM

    Hello Harold,

    It's in Windows.
    I have been informed that it generates many metrics and I have to customize the instrumentation. What classes or components would you have to monitor?

    I would take that bunch of metrics to first get the troubled ones (high ART, errors on it)

    after this initial approach.. try to remove any instrumentation and activate the typical monitoring.

    Forward the evidence to the stakeholders so they can fix their issues.


    Best regards,

    Hi, Martín


    I guess you have implementations on top of GeneXus engine, so it would be really difficult to know what to monitor. You should ask the developers what packages they have developed an start with that. Don't try to monitor genexus.*, it would show such an amount of classes that will degradate the application.


    I would start monitoring Frontend urls and then analyzing further data for the worst behaviours.
