The steps that follow outline the procedure for setting up APM and AppNeta monitoring points to monitor your network and web application performance. If your system is already set up, the best place to start is to learn more about using Delivery monitoring, Experience monitoring, and/or Usage monitoring.

Confirm that you are able to perform the setup procedures

Before you begin you must confirm that you are able to log in to APM and that you have sufficient privileges to perform the setup.

Log in to APM

APM-Public Cloud customers and APM-Private Cloud customers use different URLs to log in to APM. Use the one that applies to you.

Customer type Login URL
APM-Public Cloud login.appneta.com
   
APM-Private Cloud Use the IP address or URL for your APM-Private Cloud instance

If you do not have a user ID, contact your system administrator or AppNeta Support.

Confirm your privileges

Check that you have the privileges necessary for system setup.

User role Setup Capability
Organization Admin Can perform all setup steps
Advanced Can perform all steps except adding users and setting up notifications for other users

Set up a monitoring point

The monitoring point setup procedure depends on the type of monitoring point you want to use.

Set up monitoring

Once the monitoring point is installed and can connect to APM, you can set it up for monitoring.

  • To visualize network performance and to determine where network problems are occurring, set up Delivery monitoring.
  • To visualize application performance experienced by users at a given location, set up Experience monitoring.
  • To see how bandwidth at a given location is being devoted to particular applications, hosts, and users, set up Usage monitoring.

Set up alerting

Once you are monitoring your network, you’ll want APM to detect when there are performance issues.

Set up email notifications

Once alerting is set up and you are detecting issues in your network, you’ll want to be informed of them.

Add users

If there are other users that need access to APM, you’ll want to add them.
