APM Insight agentAPM Insight Architecture

Site24x7 APM Insight Agent needs to be downloaded and installed on every app server. Data collections happens every minute through a one-way HTTPS connection and the collected data gets pushed to Site24x7 Data Collector. This also ensures incessant agent-server communication. In the case of the .NET agent, the agent sends the collected metrics to the Windows service which, in turn, pushes the data to the Data Collector. Using the data, users can keep track of application response time, identify slow database queries, throughput, measure user satisfaction levels using Apdex scores, isolate slow invocations in code, and keep track of individual method traces etc.
