List of Bundles

CA APM Command Center installation includes the following set of bundles:
apmdevops106
The
 
OSB and WebMethods agent configurations are not available as ACC bundles. Instead, use the OSB and WebMethods NoInstaller Agent packages available from CA Support. Do not create OSB or WebMethods bundles using the default 
pbd
 and 
pbls
 files from the non-installer agent packages because this causes problems that affect your application. For more information, see CA Support.
CA APM Command Center installation includes the following set of bundles:
AgentNoRedefNoRetrans Support for JBoss, Tomcat, WebLogic, and WebSphere
You can configure your JBoss, Apache Tomcat, and WebLogic application servers on different JVMs. The IBM JVM does not support the Agent.jar file that is used by other JVMs. Use the AgentNoRedefNoRetrans.jar file that deactivates class redefinition and retransformation when running the Java agents in IBM JVMs. This bundle contains theAgentNoRedefNoRetrans.jar.file. Access and deploy the file by including the AgentNoRedefNoRetrans bundle in your package. 
Apache Fuse Extension
This bundle is a monitoring extension for JBoss Fuse. Key focus areas are the Apache Camel framework, Web Service coverage, and JMS implementations.

Garbage Collection
This bundle gives you visibility into the performance of your monitored JVMs memory allocation.
The metrics under the GC Monitor node report information about Garbage Collectors and Memory Pools. These metrics help you detect memory-related issues that are adversely affecting performance. The metrics also help you optimize memory pool allocation and garbage collection processing.
GlassFish
This bundle is used to monitor applications running on the GlassFish Application Server.
HTTP Backends
This bundle monitors the performance of outgoing HTTP queries that are made by your applications.
  • HTTP Backends creates standard BlamePoint metrics under the
