Monitoring Java Business Transactions

Once the eG Application Server Agent is installed and configured on the JVM nodes, it will start tracking transaction requests and storing transaction path and metrics in memory.

To collect these metrics, you then need to configure the eG agent to run the Java Business Transactions test. To focus on only those transactions you deem important, you can optionally configure the eG agent to run the Key Java Business Transactions test.

The metrics reported are then captured into an Application Transactions layer. This layer will appear as the first layer of the monitoring model of the application server that is BTM-enabled.
