CA APM collects and visualizes a wide range of data from your application environment. You can now tap into that data and create your own customized dashboards with the Grafana integration for CA APM. Grafana is an open-source tool that lets you send RegEx queries to the APMSQL database over a JDBC connection. Grafana then collects the query results in a stream of JSON files, which are compiled into dashboards.

/purchase component. You can also expand the query to include any other desired frontend components:
apmsql '.*thieves.*' '^Frontends.*thieves.*/purchase(?!.*?Called Backends).*Time.*' agg_value
