How do I monitor the Controller through information points?

Use information points to define custom metrics based on methods you configure. Information points are similar to data collectors. However, while data collectors show application data in the context of a business transaction, information points reflect data state across all invocations of a method, independently of business transactions.


Steps to follow: 


  1. Log out of the Controller
  2. Launch the following URL and login with the following credentials
    • <Controller_url>:8090/controller?enableAccounts=true
    • Account = system 
    • Username = root 
    • Password = <root_user_password> 

1) Information point 1:
Name = MetricDataInserter.doMetricDataInsertWithSort
Class =
Method = doMetricDataInsertWithSort
Custom Metric = metric count (see attached doMetricDataInsertWithSort_count.png )

2) Information point 2:
Name = Metric Upload Queue Wait Time
Class =
Method = reportMetricUploadQueueWaitTime
Custom Metric = reportMetricUploadQueueWaitTime.waitTimeMS (see attached reportMetricUploadQueueWaitTime.waitTimeMS.png)

3) Custom POJO BT Match rule:
Left Menu -> Configuration -> Instrumentation -> Select application (or App Server Tier if it shows green tick mark at this) -> Custom Match Rule -> Create new POJO rule
Name = MetricUploadProcessorBean.handleSingleRequestBackground
Match Class equals =
Method equals = handleSingleRequestBackground
