Application trace monitoring
How to monitor APPSERVICE-GENERIC?


ServicePilot apptrace-appservice-generic


What is generic AppTrace monitoring?

ServicePilot's APM and distributed tracing enables detailed collection and analysis of application performance through out-of-the-box dashboards that monitor requests, errors, latency of web services and databases.

For both monolithic applications and microservice architectures, implementing ServicePilot APM across all servers or containers takes only minutes to automatically retrieve APM data (via automatic instrumentation, dd-trace-api, OpenTracing or OpenTelemetry).

The Apptrace Appservice Generic package automatically collects traces of applications built with a Pyhton, PHP, Ruby, C++ APM agent or another language for which ServicePilot does not offer a specific package.

Generic Application Trace monitoring

This package monitors HTTP(S) request traces from instrumented applications.

This package uses a ServicePilot agent in combination with instrumentation (by automatic instrumentation, dd-trace-api, OpenTracing or OpenTelemetry) to allow any application to automatically send their web request statistics to ServicePilot.

This gathers summarized statistics (min,max,avg...) per application such as:

  • Requests per minute
  • Sum of requests by HTTP return codes and methods
  • Number of requests in each response time range
  • Established vs. Timed-out requests

In order to provide deep application insights, details collected per request include:

  • Host and web page path
  • Server and client IP
  • Real User Response time
  • HTTP Return code and method
  • Client country and geolocation for public IPs
