SSRS Monitoring

Team,

 

We have configured .net agnet for monitoring SSRS Application it but while checking in tier new instances are getting discovered on dialy basis, any idea how to identify it or can we configure only those services which needs to be moinitored. License is too getting consumed for that reason.

 

Also on which pattern do we need to create Business Transactions.

 

Any suggestions.

Re: SSRS Monitoring

Hi Jubinp,

 

For configuration refer below

 

1. Create a Config.xml which contains all of your other instrumented applications plus the ReportingServicesService.exe windows service.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<appdynamics-agent xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
<controller host="<CONTROLLER HOST>" port="<PORT>" ssl="true" enable_tls12="true">
<application name="<Application Name>" />
<account name="<ACCOUNT>" password="<ACCESS KEY>" />
</controller>
<machine-agent />
<app-agents>
<IIS>
<applications />
</IIS>
<standalone-applications>
<standalone-application executable="C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS11.MSSQLSERVER\Reporting Services\ReportServer\bin\ReportingServicesService.exe">
<tier name="SSRS Reporting" />
<profiler> 
<instrument-defaultdomain enabled="true" /> 
</profiler>
</standalone-application>
</standalone-applications>
</app-agents>
</appdynamics-agent>

2. Restart the Service and the AppDynamics Coordinator Service

3. From you controller enable the following Properties from the App Server Agent Configuration at the 'SSRS Reporting' tier level
enable-soap-header-correlation => true
thread-correlation => true (if it does not exist you will have to create it)
Optional (If this is the starting tier, you will need to disable ASP.NET automatic detection and create a new POCO Custom Match Rule)
SSRS - Split based on Report Names

Create following POCO Rule
Class : Microsoft.ReportingServices.Library.RenderReportAction Method :PerformExecution Splitter 1 Object Instance Getter Chain of m_reportContext.ReportDefinitionPath Optional (If this tier is a downstream tier, do not create the POCO rule and make sure ASP.NET automatic detection is enabled). This will allow the appdynamics correlation to propagate from the upstream tier to the reporting tier. Restart the Service and the AppDynamics Coordinator Service and your Application Flow map should be similar to this.

 

For the multiple node issue are these nodes getting created from a single server? Can you navigate to couple Node Dashboards and identify whether these are getting created for different AppDomains ( the link at the end shows how to check that)?

 

The report executions happen in default AppDomain so we can just target this particular AppDomain monitoring

Note : Change the extension to PDF

Re: SSRS Monitoring

Also seems like this is a good candidate for a KB article so I will create and publish that.

Re: SSRS Monitoring

Thanks for your response.

Currently we are getting multiple node entries under one tier:

While going through the link shared "Default domian" is the actual one and others are not necessary, so do we have to config only "default" one for Reportingservices? 

 

Also for BT discovery on what pattern do we have create it.

Re: SSRS Monitoring

Hi,

 

  So all the duplicate nodes that you see are for "DefaultDomain" or you meant only DefaultDomain is the one which is reporting and rest are just empty nodes?

 

 

You can just target instrumentation for DefaultDomain like below

 

<standalone-application executable="MyApp.exe" app-domain-name="DefaultDomain.exe">
<tier name="StandaloneApplication Tier"/>
</standalone-application>

Or you can hardcode the node name like below. Any name can be provided but make sure to provide a unique node name if SSRS service is instrumented on multiple servers

<standalone-application executable="MyApp.exe" >
<tier name="StandaloneApplication Tier"/>
<node name="HostName-NodeName" </standalone-application>

 

Thanks,

Re: SSRS Monitoring

Hi,

 

Currently all other nodes are getting calls for it. While going through the document shared which domain needs to be monitored there are multiple domain identify while checking in settings clr tab for each discover node, so which one to go with there is no information from application team.
