Monitor Desktop App

Hello

It's possible log Desktop App's Exceptions and Performance with an APM Agent?. I have reading the documentation and don't found anything that could help with that requirement.

 

Thank you

Matias

Hi Matias, 
 
Thanks for your interest in APM Insight monitoring. We have a few queries regarding your requirement.
 
For Java based applications, we can support monitoring using custom instrumentation. Kindly contact support if you need assistance for the same.
 
For non-Java based apps, kindly provide us the details on the desktop application you are willing to monitor.
1. Is it developed in a managed language (i.e., .NET based language like C#) ?
2. Is the application designed to run in the background? If so, Is it a WCF/WPF based application? 
3. Is the application primarily developed for front-end use? If so, is it a UWP or .NET Core based application ?
4. Is the application meant to be distributed as a store application or used only in managed environments ?
 
Kindly note that we are working on extending support for multiple platforms and environments. Based on your requirement, we may be able to customize and give you a beta version. You can also write to support@site24x7.com or talk to us about your requirement in detail.

Hi Shrinivasan S S

To answer your questions:

We have a two layer application, the front-end layer that is an desktop app and a group of services who provide service to the desktop app. All the apps are developed in C# .NET and the services are developed in WCF and a rest api using Web Api and MVC. The desktop app is deployed in an managed enviorement.

For now we are monitoring the rest api and the WCF services using Site24x7 but we want to extend the monitoring to the desktop app's for log uncontrolled exceptions and do a medition of performance.

 

Thanks.

Matias.

Hi Matias, 
 
Thanks for the update.
 
We are extending our performance monitoring solution to support desktop applications (and windows services too), using our custom instrumentation framework. If you are interested, we'll reach you out and share a beta version as soon as we are done with internal testing.
