e2e_appmon (E2E Application Response Monitoring)

The E2E Application Response Monitoring (e2e_appmon) probe executes precompiled NimRecorder scripts and monitors the following parameters:
uimpga-ga
The E2E Application Response Monitoring (e2e_appmon) probe executes precompiled NimRecorder scripts and monitors the following parameters:
  • Response time of the script execution
  • Execution time of scripts
  • Availability of client applications
Each transaction executes for a certain time limit and generates the QoS messages from the script.
The probe includes the following features:
 The probe has limitations to use Optical Character Recognition (OCR) in the scripts. So, instead of using OCR, you can use the bitmap synchronization (synchronization on an image) to use the text logo.
  •  
    Scripts: 
    The probe executes scripts at specified intervals to monitor the availability and the response time of the target applications. With the NimRecorder (shipped with e2e_appmon_dev probe), you can create your scripts. Use the probe API to include checkpoints in your scripts. The scripts must be compiled on the systems where they execute.
     Do not execute other applications or tasks on the monitoring computer, as it disrupts the probe monitoring and measurement process.
  •  
    Sample Script: 
    The probe is deployed with sample scripts. Activate the probe and execute the sample script. Compile the script on the target computer before executing it. If you execute the script before compiling, an error message displays. For example, the error message is: 
    Error at line 348: Impossible to load the module
    .
    A script is compiled based on each operating system configuration. Hence, the compiled script can execute only on similarly configured computers.
  •  
    Probe Editions: 
    The probe is available in the following two editions:
    • The execution time edition of the probe enables you to execute precompiled scripts.
    • The developer edition of the probe (
      e2e_appmon_dev)
       allows you to create scripts and include checkpoints in those scripts. The e2e_appmon_dev probe measures intermediate time of each process along with the total execution time of the script. Some help files to aid develop scripts are also included.
  •  
    NimRecorder: 
    You can use 
    NimRecorder
    , which is included in the probe package, to create custom scripts. The NimRecorder can be launched from 
    Start > All Programs > Nimsoft Monitoring > E2E Scripting
    .  If you want to install the Nimrecorder, it is located at C:\Program Files\Nimsoft\probes\application\e2e_appmon\install.
    The NimRecorder has the following features:
    •  
      Open*
      execute
      , and 
      compile*
       scripts for 32-bit and 64-bit platforms.
       You can create and execute scripts for 64-bit platforms on 
      NimRecorder 5.2 and later
      .
    •  
      (version 5.2 and later)
       Web-based scripts for Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. For more information, refer the NimRecorder 5.2 documentation for supported platforms and browser versions and other relevant information. You can access the NimRecorder help from the following locations:
      •  
        Start > All Programs > Nimsoft Monitoring > E2E Scripting > Help
         
      •  
        Help

     The options marked with an asterisk (*) are available only in the 
    developer 
    edition of the probe or after manually installing the NimRecorder.
