The CA APM Environment Performance Agent (EPAgent) integrates metric data from non-Java sources into CA Introscope®.


The EPAgent takes advantage of the facility available in many operating systems for one process to spawn a sub-process and receive standard output from the sub-process via operating system pipes (standard IPC mechanism). When the ability to initiate a sub-process is combined with a flexible scripting environment (such as Perl) the result is an adaptable and powerful facility for gathering application performance information from virtually any source.
