Boundary - Monitoring Extension

Boundary Monitoring Extension

 

This extension works only with the standalone machine agent.

 

Use Case

 

Boundary is a consolidated operations management platform built for today’s IT environments. Delivered as a SaaS offering, Boundary enables customers to monitor their entire IT environment from a single point of control and is uniquely designed to deal with challenges of modern, highly distributed applications. The boundary-monitoring-extension gathers aggregate meter metrics exposed through Boundary's Historical Data REST API and sends them to the AppDynamics Metric Browser.

  1. Download and unzip the BoundaryMonitor zip file into the <machineagent install dir>/monitors/ directory.
