# AppTrace Service

Overview

This package monitors AppTrace Web Requests for a web Service.

Description

This package is designed to monitor AppTrace Web services and retrieve per minute usage of these services. The AppTrace web service needs to be configured to send statistics to the ServicePilot database. ServicePilot web services are already configured to do this.

Requirements

  • ServicePilot Requirements

    • ServicePilot Manager minimum version: 8.5
    • ServicePilot Agent Minimum version 8.5: installed and configured

Installation

Before adding a resource to monitor, make certain that all pre-requisites are in place and if a ServicePilot Agent is required, that it is communicating correctly with the ServicePilot Manager. Resources can be added to ServicePilot configuration in a number of ways:

Add resource using Views Configuration web interface

  7. Click Save to apply the new resource to ServicePilot configuration.

  2. Navigate to Administration.
