How to add Cassandra DB for monitoring under Infrastructure Overview Tab in Dynatrace Appmon?

Hello,

how could I add Cassandra DB for monitoring in Dynatrace Appmon? Cassandra DB is running as container under Docker. DTAagent is running on the host but still it is not visualized under Infrastructure Overview tab in Dynatrace Appmon.

Any hints?

Hello @Konstantin M.

Have a look in the below links for better understanding.

For instrumentation of the Cassandra client API, you have to inject the Java Agent, and the Cassandra Sensor must be placed in those Agent Groups that make calls to Cassandra.

With the composition-based approach, you use the AppMon/agent Docker image that includes all variants of the AppMon agent that you can configure to attach to your existing Docker containers.

Hello Babar,

thank you for the fast response and clear explanation.In case there is no Java agent running Cassandra DB could we somehow adopt the DB config to be monitored properly in Dynatrace?

Thank you,
