What you will learn in the Detecting & Managing Transactions Course

This half-day Detecting & Managing Transactions Course covers everything you need to know to extend your monitoring capabilities. You will use custom entry points, exit points, and information points to collect code and business metrics outside the context of Business Transactions. You will learn how to provide technical context for an issue using data collectors that add information to a Business Transaction snapshot to help identify the root cause of an issue. You will get hands on experience configuring Business Transaction rules & custom transaction thresholds.

The Controller Configuration Fundamentals Course will teach you how change the AppDynamics transaction detection configuration to add a POJO entry point and edit configuration to add a .NET Class/Method entry point. You will change the backend detection configuration to add an exit point to discover and categorize specific calls and utilize that information point to aggregate metrics from two Business Transactions into a single metric.
