This section explains the requirements and parameters for installation of Spring Insight.

You must install and configure a vRealize Hyperic agent on both of the following:

  • The Insight Dashboard host.

  • Each host that runs an Insight Agent reporting to the Insight Dashboard.

If your application server is monitored by a vRealize Hyperic agent, performance metrics for the server instance that a Spring Insight application runs are available in the Spring Insight plugin user interface, described in Spring Insight Applications View.

If your application has a database tier, if the database server is managed by a vRealize Hyperic agent, the Spring Application View will include database metrics, along with metrics for the application, application server, and platform tiers.

If you want to see database metrics in the Spring Application View, you must install and configure a vRealize Hyperic agent on the database server host.
