Is collating transaction errors possible?

Is collating transaction errors possible?

As I drill down through Application to Business Transactions and finally Errors I have found that it only seems possible to Export Grid Data to get an overview of errors being recorded.

 

As I drill down into each error I get more verbose detail of the specific error.

 

Is there any way to get a full printout of these more verbose specific error messages without having to copy/paste each individual error? I'd like to be able to capture all of the verbose errors and start to filter them to see if there's any trends.

 

Maybe AppDynamics already has a way of simplifying this and I'm trying to reinvent the wheel?

 

I've attached screenshots

1. ExportGridData.PNG - Summary that I can generate already - It's not verbose

2. VerboseTransactionError.PNG - I want all of these verbose errors collated into one big file that can be filtered.

 

I hope this all makes sense!

Re: Is collating transaction errors possible?

Hi Felix,

 

It sounds like you would like to create a report based on the set of unique values of error messages that occurred in a given time range.

One approach to do that is to leverage the REST API to collect the set of matching diagnostic snapshots with errors, then extract the set of distict values from the <errorDetails> block.

 

The REST call would look something like this:

http://controller1.appdynamics.com/controller/rest/applications/RegisterApp/request-snapshots?time-r...

 

The output looks like this:

 

<request-segment-datas>
<request-segment-data>

<requestGUID>70f16d2d-18ba-48bc-b148-058e403eb76c</requestGUID>

Once filtered, you'd organize these error messages into a meaningful report, by count, BT, etc.

What you want to do is not easy in AppDynamics UI.

 

However, newly available https://www.appdynamics.com/community/exchange/extension/appdynamics-dexter-data-extraction-enhanced... extension can give you exactly what you want
