Welcome to AppNeta Performance Manager (APM)! Whether you’re deploying for the first time, or you’re extending an existing deployment, this is your one, best place to learn what APM does, why it’s important to your business, and how to maximize the value you get from it.

Prerequisites

  1. Make sure you can log in to APM.
    • Public Cloud customers use login.appneta.com.
    • Private Cloud customers use the IP address or URL for your APM-Private Cloud instance.
    • If you don’t have your credentials, contact someone in your company that has organization admin level credentials.
  2. Check your privilege.
    • Options that are above your privilege level are not visible to you, and this can be a source of confusion for new users.

Set up a monitoring point

To use APM, you need two things: an app to monitor, and somewhere to monitor from. That ‘somewhere’ is a device that we provide you, which we call a monitoring point. Install this device in your network. Some models have primary and alternate install methods, the primary is recommended.

Model Primary Alternate
m22, m30, r40 USB Direct connect
r400 @1G USB Direct connect
r400 @10G USB Direct connect
m25, m35, r45 USB
s20 Install
v35 on KVM Install
v35 on VMware Install
