  • 1.  Pointing Agent Metrics to Domains in Investigator from SuperDomain

    Posted 12-24-2018 06:33 AM

    Hi Team,

     

    We have different  groups created in Domains to classify middleware, web-sphere etc in our environment.

     

    There is a requirement for pointing agent metrics from SuperDomain to Domains.

     

    Can we point the metrics in Domains & wheather it will be removed from SuperDomain or not??

     

    If agents metrics is reporting in both Doamin & SuperDomain, Is it showing same data??

     

     

    Appreciate for the valuable comments

     

    Regards,

    Anuranjan Kumar

    If you have agents mapped to domains, a user with SuperDomain permission would still be able to see that data.

    Agents can only be in SuperDomain or one custom domain - they cannot report data to both the SuperDomain and custom domain at the same time.

     

    It's unclear where your agents are reporting at the moment, this is documentation on mapping the agents to domains

    Define and Configure Introscope Domains - CA Application Performance Management - 10.1 - CA Technologies Documentation 

     

    APM 10.1 introduced a feature of dynamic domains, if this is turned on, agents can change mapping to domains without restarts.

     

    The domain forms part of the full name of the agent, If the domain of the agent changes, the product sees this as a new agent, this breaks the continuity of historical data, this should be taken into consideration when making domain changes.

     

    You can use agentclusters.xml to copy data from agents reporting in SuperDomain into one or more custom domains but this should be used to only report metrics that you need to report, not to copy the agent's whole set of metrics.

     

    Configuring Virtual Agents - CA Application Performance Management - 9.6 - CA Technologies Documentation 

     

    If you are using things like Management Modules, if the Management Modules are in domains, they would not be able to access the data in SuperDomain, management modules also cannot make cross-domain links

     

    If you want the metrics in the domains, it sounds like agent mapping to domains is the best option for you, taking into account the possible initial loss of historical data (although the old historical data can still be mounted as a separate agent)

    HI David,

     

    I have tested in dev, configuration changes in domain.xml is working as per our expectation.

     

    Thanks again.
