We have countless PowerShell scripts that automate various processes and we'd like to use AppDynamics to monitor those scripts and funtions within them. A single script might have dozens of different functions we would want to monitor. For example, a single VM build script would contain events we want to gather for cloning the VM template, joining the VM to the domain, running some default configurations, etc.
From what I can gather, there are potentially 2 methods that we can use. One of them being installing the .NET agent and using a custom monitor that reports back what is outputed from the script. The second, I believe, is utilizing the RestAPI to post events.
Am I correct in that these two methods would work? If so, is there any advantage to installing the .NET agent and writing a custom monitor when you can just post events using the RestAPI?
If anyone has any experience with this, please let me know. I would appreciate any assistance.
