We are planning to onboard the new VB6 developed application in to the CA APM 10.7and it is using IIS and Oracle database.
Can we monitor this VB6 application using CA APM 10.7 or not?
Thanks,Ramesh kCell No: 657-363-9363
The APM .NET Agent can only monitor managed code i.e. code compiled to the byte code CIL/IL running under .NET Framework CLR. So for example it can monitor VB.NET but not standard Visual Basic like VB6.
Microsoft .NET Agent - CA Application Performance Management - 10.7 - CA Technologies Documentation
So if your VB6 application has no .NET components at all then it won't be possible for the APM .NET Agent to monitor it.
One other option would be monitor Windows Perfmon metrics related to the application using the Performance Monitor Collection Agent that is deployed separately with the .NET agent:
Configure .NET Agent Properties - CA Application Performance Management - 10.7 - CA Technologies Documentation
Hope that helps.
VB6 hasn't been supported by MS since the mid-2000s.
Thanks for shared your great knowledge with me.
