Installing and Configuring an eG RUM Collector

A default RUM collector (64-bit) is bundled with the eG manager. By mapping this default collector with any web site/web application (in eG terminology, this refers to the Real User Monitor component) to be monitored, you can ensure that performance beacons carrying the user experience metrics related to that web site/web application are sent to the default collector.


Since the default RUM collector is bundled with the eG manager, stopping the eG manager will stop the collector as well.

Where many web sites/web applications are managed for user experience monitoring, a single collector may not be able to handle the measure load generated. To avoid overloading the default collector, you may want to install and configure multiple collectors and distribute the monitoring load uniformly across all collectors – say, by assigning a separate web site/web application to each collector.

This section describes how to install and configure additional RUM collectors.
