Having trouble instrumenting a custom entry point in .Net


First off you'll have to forgive me, I'm getting this information from a .Net developer and I'm generally more on the Java side of things so I hope I'm providing the right information.

Our .Net developers have an application that has an IIS webserver frontend that sends tasks off to an IIS worker process that spins itself up to take care of whatever the request was. The Webserver instrumentation was no problem, pointed DT at the windows service and it instrumented all of the relevant classes and methods, everything shows up as PurePaths.

We're having a more difficult time with the worker processes. I assigned the worker service to an agent. The service reports back to the collector, but with no PurePath data. I then setup a custom sensor on the class that the developers said was the 'entry point'. Still no PurePath data. What can I do to make sure that I'm properly instrumenting these worker processes?

Hello Jeff,

On the first step can you check in the agent overviews dashbaord whether connected agents that you have some event count and class load count. If Yes

Then we should check that all the relevant sensors are active ans start PurePaths.

Secondly we can take the CPU sampling to get the methods to create the custom sensor as an entry point.
