Hi Ankjain,


Servers: - uri: should point to you dropwizard health metric URL path.


For more details, please refer link:


For Example:

#Dropwizard Health Metric URL path
  - uri: http://<<dropwizard_host>>:<<health_metrics_port>>/metrics
    displayName: metrics

dropwizard health metric URL path ?



So its mean i have to run any dropwizard server i thought appdynamocs itself catch it by capturing from java application wen i put in monitors folder. I have java service running nothing else. 



Can you help me which server i need to run to get dropwizard metrics and do i need to code anything in java to report ?

Hi Ankjain,


Is your Java application a dropwizard based application. If not, try to get some sample dropwizard application dowloading and run is.


Verify if you are able to fetch using URL: 



If yes, please download a standalone machine agent and install the dropwizard monitoring extension (By changing the config.yml file accordingly) .
