Java Agent

The Java agent provides automatic tracing and metrics for JVM-based languages. For new features, fixed issues, and updated components, see the Java Agent Release Notes.

Get started

Ensure that your platform and application components are 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

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.

Code Profiling

Code profiling provides extra insight into code level execution time that is otherwise not captured by auto-instrumentation. See code profiling and the Java-specific details for more on this feature, available starting with agent version 6.8.0.

Navigation Notice: When the APM Integrated Experience is enabled, AppOptics shares a common navigation and enhanced feature set with other integrated experience products. How you navigate AppOptics and access its features may vary from these instructions.
