Components of AppDynamics - DB.


Hello all!

I have a question about the components of AppD.
There are several components of AppD like - Controller, Agents, Tier, Nodes, etc., but a very important component is a database.

Can someone provide me with information about what is the difference between AppD DataBase and AppD DataBase Agent? What DB Agent monitoring more?

How does DataBase work?

I know that documentation, placed here :

But I assume this documentation has only information about DB Agent, or am I wrong?


Thanks for your help!

Database agent is the agent that monitor different Databases. that you application work with. remotely connected to these Databases through JDBC connection, and run queries to get the performance data about each , you can find here the supportability matrix Database Visibility Supported Environments (
