For Application Connectivity Monitor, the Domain Manager Administration Console, which is accessed from the Global Console, includes an Application Signature tab. The tab enables administrators and integrators to access the application signature configuration interface. Use the application signature configuration interface to:

  • Enable and configure application signatures
  • Create new application signatures
  • Delete application signatures

To access the application signature configuration interface:


  1. From the Global Console, select Configure > Domain Manager Administration Console.
  2. Click the Domain Manager icon in the Topology Tree.
  3. Click the Application Signature tab.
    Figure 1. Application Signature tab

    The table at the top of the tab (see Figure Application Signature tab) displays the list of application signatures available in the ACM Domain Manager. Each row in the table corresponds to an application signature and each column in the row corresponds to a field in the application signature.

    Enabled signatures (those already deployed) appear in normal font; disabled signatures appear in dimmed italic font.

    By default, application signatures are disabled (dimmed).

    To enable a signature:
    1. Select the needed autodetect signature.

      The signature name is then placed in the Name field, and the values for the selected signature are displayed.

    2. Click the Enabled checkbox.
    3. Update the parameters as required.

      Modifying application signatures” contains information on modifying parameter values.

    4. Click Apply.
    Note: Enabled signatures that are later disabled continue to monitor the discovered elements, but do not detect new elements.

    Except for custom signatures, the listed application signatures use the Standard Probe, which is set to Autodetect, to discover applications. They also use a standard tcpAction for the monitoring action.
