Figure 1 : List of RUM collectors that pre-exist

  1. The eG manager is bundled with a default RUM collector. By default, this default collector will be listed in Figure 1. You can neither modify the details of this collector, nor delete it.  
  2. To add a new collector, click the Add New Collector button in Figure 1.
  3. Figure 2 then appears. In the Nick Name text box of Figure 2, provide a unique name for the new collector. Then, specify the Public URL of the RUM collector. Optionally, you can also provide a Private URL for the RUM collector.

    Figure 2 : Adding a new RUM collector


    A private URL is mandatory in the following situations:

    • If the web site/web application being managed receives requests from users within a private network; in this case, the browsers used by these intranet users will be able to communicate user experience metrics to the RUM collector, only if the collector is configured with a private URL.

    • If the remote agent monitoring the web site/web application is deployed in a private network; without a private URL, this remote agent will not be able to poll the collector for metrics.

  4. Finally, click the Add button in Figure 2 to add the new collector.
