Hi Everyone! I currently want to achieve the following: I want to get a data processed on transaction (an example would be employee ID) from a business transaction. I'm not quite sure if "Analytics" module is involved at this point. For example, the business transaction was made through HTTP, and the call has a field named employeeID with value of 112233. How can I breakdown the transaction and search for employeeID? With the goal achieved above, how do I use it to query on ADQL analytics? I've been trying to figure out data collections. It's still quite unclear to me however, I understand that I need the class and method name to implement a data collector. How about the data that has been passed through HTTP? Is there any way to "dissect" the HTTP call?

Recently, we have frequent errors regarding "Agent Metric Registration Limit Reached". I searched the kbs and Google for possible answers and came up with this. We are trying to get much information regarding this error so that we can better plan on our next steps. With this, we have few questions and I hope you could help us with these:
On the first paragraph of the solution, it has been said that: " Mostly seen when users try to register Custom Metrics with incorrect configurations.". Does this mean that there is a possibility we are seeing this error because of misconfiguration and not just because of exhausting all 5000 metric limit?
Is there any way to know the total number of metrics (both custom and standard) on a specific Tier and/or Application?
There are other users of our AppDynamics we don't have any contact with. I would like to ask if there's any way we could find the custom metric with incorrect config so we can solve it on our own?
On the link given above, it has been said that increasing maximum metric size will yield to higher CPU utilization. Upon checking on our end, CPU and memory utilization of our controller is still low. May I know how big the increase will be? Are there any rule of thumbs to follow when increasing metric limit registration size?
Unfortunately, our events service memory utilization is approaching high. May I ask if changing metric limit registration size will affect events service utilization?
Aside from memory and cpu, can Filesystem utilization of the main controller (or other services) increase?
I hope you could help us with these. Thank you very much!

I have some questions regarding on how AppDynamics calculate / measures health and metrics.
1. How does AppDynamics measure the health of a Tier? Does it have a (hidden) health rule? What conditions should be met to qualify that a tier is in a critical or warning condition?
2. How does AppDynamics measure the health of a Node? Does it have a (hidden) health rule? What conditions should be met to qualify that a tier is in a critical or warning condition?
3. How does AppDynamics compute for dynamic baseline?
4. On Application Dashboard, sometimes, after setting the baseline to whatever date, the inside circle of the tier icons sometimes turn green. What does this mean?
I hope you can help me with this. Thank you very much!
