AppDynamics Application Performance Monitoring for PCF


To simplify APM setup, the AppDynamics Application Performance Monitoring (APM) for Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) tile delivers a service broker to support an AppDynamics marketplace service. The Controller parameters are configured in the tile and automatically published to the marketplace when the tile is installed.

A PCF app can be bound to the marketplace service to consume the Controller credentials.

$ cf bind my-pcf-app my-appd-marketplace-service

Performing a push will utilize the integrated AppDynamics buildpack support to start the APM agent based on the parameters from the marketplace service and start sending performance metrics to the Controller.

$ cf push

The tile also installs the AppDynamics extension buildpack in the PCF environment. For more information see the buildpack support and language-specific workflows sections to enable APM.
