# Web Monitoring Proxy

Overview

This package adds a web proxy to the ServicePilot Agent, Web sub-agent for use by other web packages.

Description

This package configures the ServicePilot Agent with a web proxy definition. The Web Monitoring Proxy package can be imported multiple times per ServicePilot Agent as long as the proxy names are unique. One of these definitions can then be used per web packages to collect statistics.

A proxy definition consists of a unique name, proxy IP address and port and any login credentials if required.
