APM Insight PHP agent - multiple applications

This may have been answered elsewhere or I'm misunderstanding how this works.

I have installed the APM Insight PHP agent on a Linux server which hosts multiple web applications and databases.

How do you identify these separate entities in the Monitor?

Re: APM Insight PHP agent - multiple applications

Hi Scott,

We don't support multiple application monitoring in PHP Agent yet. Currently it is a work in progress and should be available within a couple of release cycles.

For now, the agent will be able to aggregate metrics from multiple applications, running the same PHP version and display it under one APM Insight monitor.

Thanks for the reply Shrinivasan. 

We do have the a few apps running under different PHP versions. So at this point which PHP version does the agent default to, or can that be controlled?

Hi Scott, 

We detect the PHP version based on the output of "php -v" command. So the PHP that is currently set in the environment, will be picked up for monitoring automatically. 

However, you can work around this limitation, if you wish to monitor different versions of PHP, by following our manual installation instructions. This requires configuring the APM Insight PHP extension for each version of PHP separately, i.e., copying the 'zpa.ini' file and the respective 'zpa.so' file, to the corresponding PHP extension directories.

If you need assistance on doing the same, feel free to reach out to us via support
