How to Monitor Microsoft AppFabric Caching Using eG Enterprise

eG Enterprise monitors the Microsoft AppFabric Caching in both agent based and agentless manners.

Managing the Microsoft AppFabric Caching

eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover the Microsoft AppFabric Caching. You need to manually add the component for monitoring. To manage a Microsoft AppFabric Caching component, do the following:

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. Add the component manually using the COMPONENTS page (Infrastructure -> Components -> Add/Modify) of the eG administrative interface. Remember that components manually added are managed automatically.
  3. In the COMPONENTS page, select Microsoft AppFabric Caching as the Component type. Then, click the Add New Component button. This will invoke Figure 1.
