Good day -
I'd like to use AppDynamics all of our Windows services. A number of these have no external entrypoint (REST or WCF), they run on timers and perform tasks; internally they are all custom code, with no ASP.NET, WCF etc. I cannot seem to get the AppDynamic agent to register information about them. Can someone give me some guidance?
What I have done is:
1) Configure them (using app.config files etc) to be picked up by the agent. On the website I can see them registers as services, but no data is being logged.
2) I attempted to register custom entry/exit points in the AppDynamics portal using the Transaction Detection page, but the only call showing there for these services were some low-level .NET Framework APIs which aren't meaningful to me for monitoring.
Hence my question: can AppDynamics monitor code like this, and if so how?
We should be able to get the BTs identified via Custom Match Rule of type .net Class/Method. You just need to identify the Class and Method which the timer invokes and set POCO on it.
