The Java agent provides automatic tracing and metrics for JVM-based languages.
Check that your platform is Supported.
To get up and running with APM, you’ll download and install the AppOptics Java Agent. After that, a restart of the application server will load the agent and automatically begin reporting data.
Custom instrumentation can be used to get extra application-specific visibility in AppOptics, both adding custom spans for distributed tracing and adding custom timers/counters for metric reporting and alerting. Check out the SDK.
