Do the JS Agents have to be manually instrumented to report information points? When I try to add an information point the only options are Java, .NET, and PHP.
1. Why there is no option for JS to add information point?
2. How do I configure JS Agents to report all the information points?
Yeah, the way we do this in Node.js is through the agent API: https://docs.appdynamics.com/display/PRO44/Node.js+Agent+API+Reference. Specifically, there are two options:
addSnapshotData will just add a key value pair to each request snapshot that the agent takes, while the addAnalyticsData will work more like a data collector, providing metrics.
Please let us know if you have any issues.
