Add AppServers to ProTop

Is it possible (I believe it is, but could be mistaken) to add AppServers to the monitored resources in ProTop? Is there a guide for setting this up?
etc/appsrv.cfg is your friend
The extensive and highly detailed documentation in the header servers as your "user guide":
# appsrv.cfg # # type name "query command" # # - names (column 2) are case sensitive! # - the "name" field will be substituted for "&1" when the command is run # # i.e. # ws ws1 "wtbman -i &1 -query 2>&&1" # # admin proadsv "proadsv -q 2>&&1" # admin server does not actually use the name field -- but we need a name entry # ns NS1 "nsman -i &1 -q 2>&&1" # apsv asbroker1 "asbman -i &1 -q 2>&&1" # ws wsbroker1 "wtbman -i &1 -q 2>&&1"
You can then add a resource in the usual manner. Just use -1 for the dbname
Unless you only have one db or you have one that it makes sense to tie the app servers to, you will probably want an etc/pt3agent.resource.cfg file dedicated to your app servers.
Regardless the ptInitDC needs to have AppSrvStatus added to it. If it is a stand-alone app server agent (no db) then you will probably not want any other data collectors running. Something like this (etc/pt3agent.appsrv.cfg):
# pt3agent.cfg # # you must restart after changes -- this cfg file is not monitored # # pt3agent.friendlyName.cfg will override this config for a friendlyName instance of pt3agent # ptInitDC "AppSrvStatus"
As always, you can (and should) test your configuration with the ChUI ProTop before getting too crazy. If you called your resource "appsrv":
Will fire up the ChUI client. The dashboard and other db centric screens will be null but you can dismiss them if you'd like. The "@" command brings up app server data.
