How can we utilize CA APM when using CA DevTest(LISA)? What features and metrics are important to look at and why?
You'd use it to instrument DevTest Processes - Coordinator, Simulator, Portal, VSE, Registry, Dashboard as well as the Workstation. You'd mostly be looking for CPU/Memory/GarbageColl/sockets, etc
You can also instrument at the Test Case, Test Step, Simulator level and grab metrics....
If you could provide me any scenarios or examples, that'd be really helpful. But, thanks for your response.
There's some info here: https://wiki.ca.com/display/DTS81/Configure+Integration+with+CA+APM
Is this helpful?
Yes, that's helpful. Thanks.
This is also documented in the APM guide here:
Got it. Thanks.
I've found this (the Lisa Docs on Interscope Integration) to be out of date and confusing. I found it best to ignore all except https://wiki.ca.com/display/DTS81/Instrumenting+DevTest+Processes
Get your own introscope agent files from your introscope installtion, add javaagent arguments to correct .vmoptions file, and see what stats you find out of the box. I have since removed this because it wasn't worth the added cost to our team.
