Customer owns Lombardi BPMS system. This product is owned by IBM and runs atop the WAS container. Beyond just JVM metrics, they are interested to see if dT can see any of the metrics inside of Lombardi. For example, inside of BPMS, when a long running BPMS process begins it is called a workflow. It would be nice to be able to determine how many workflows (and other Lombardi artifacts) are active in a JVM instead of just seeing JVM metrics.

Since dynaTrace measures atomic transactions, it is not able to track long running BPM processes spanning different transactions using Business Transactions. If you know which method to measure, you could see the amount of new/closed processes in a period of time.
Maybe this meta-information (amount of processes/stage) is available through the management interface of Lombardi, using JMX/PMI measures?
