Welcome to Foglight APM for Real User Experience

Welcome to Foglight APM for Real User Experience

Foglight™ APM for Real User Experience (hereafter called Foglight APM) is an appliance-based application performance management solution. You can use Foglight APM to understand how real users navigate and interact with your monitored web sites and web applications.

Foglight APM adds a set of dashboards on the navigation panel, under Dashboards > APM. You can use these dashboards to perform the following tasks:

  • Configure — configure the software components hosted on the Foglight APM appliances, modify what data is captured, and define how the data should be handled or analyzed before being stored.

    • Traffic Analysis — configure what happens to the data after it has been captured. You can define analyzers and sensitive data policies. For example, you can define analyzers that run automatically on the captured data and perform tasks such as updating metrics or annotating data.
    • Traffic Capture — configure the software components and assign them to capture groups. Set options to resolve gaps in the data captured by default, decrypt secure traffic, and capture additional information that makes the data more meaningful. For example, you can capture originating IP addresses hidden by virtual addressing schemes such as proxy servers.
  • Configure Advanced Options — configure infrequently-used options to better reflect your environment. Generally speaking, you can leave these options with default values until you need to change them.
  • Search — search the Archiver database for details about hits, sequences, and sessions. Display search results in pivot charts or maps, and publish charts and maps to custom dashboards.
  • Sequence Explorer — monitor trends in how users navigate a selected sequence.
  • Support — monitor the performance of your Foglight APM Appliances, update software, and create support bundles.
  • Transactions — explore a set of tiles representing transactional performance data collected from a number of Foglight sources, including real users, synthetic users, pivots, and more.
  • Web Sites and Endpoints — monitor the health of all the web sites and web applications in the monitored environment as well as all endpoints (an endpoint is a monitored port on a monitored IP address).

These Release Notes cover the resolved issues, known issues, workarounds, and other important information about the 5.9.11 release of Foglight APM. Review all sections before starting the installation.
