relationship between two servers from different tiers

Hello,

Is it possible to know the traffic between two servers which belong to a different tiers? Is it possible to know the operations between two servers which belong to different tiers?

I'm trying to create a DMI extracting this information in which on of the servers is the origin and the other one the destination without success.

How can I do it?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Elena.

Hi Elena,

Create a custom DMI, add one server's IP address as the client IP address, add the other server's IP address as the server IP address; then add the operations metric.

Let me know if this helps.

Regards,

Harshal.

Another option (which makes it easier to create applications and reports) is to use client grouping. Take a look on this page - step 6.

I use this for assigning specific client access to a software service in business units, along with reporting.

Let's say you have a DB server for many applications (software service named: BigDB). Application 1 has servers (10.1.1.1 and 10.1.1.2). Use the software client range (10.1.1.1-10.1.1.2) to put a suffix on the reported software service: BigDB_App1. Any access by App1's two servers will show up in the software service list as BigDB_App1. Create more groupings for other applications. Any clients that do not match the range just go to the software service: BigDB.

In business units - when you create the App1 Application - add the software service rule "BigDB_App1" to isolate the calls for the App1 Application Servers to the DB server.

With a little bit of practice this can make your applications report more accurate data for calls between tiers.

Have not seen the "Conversation details" perspective in the Network explorer report in the 2017 release? It shows you what other servers and clients you IP address talked to. Might be useful in you case.

One of the suggested ways to get there is through search. You can ask "192.168.117.45" or "192.168.117.45 servers" to get the list of servers to further drilldown to Conversation details.

Using smart questions in DC RUM 2017 search you can also ask: "what are the conversations with 192.168.117.45 server".
