Is an ADS required to report on extracted parameters from the Packet body?

Hi all,

To monitor my applications transactions I decided to utilize DC RUM to pick out the parameters from the
header/body and report on them separately. My question is, do I require an ADS to view this data?

Kind Regards,

David

Hi David,

Since you want to report on the parameters in the header/body, say username in the request header, you don't necessarily need a ADS to view this data. You can take a packet capture and view this data in Wireshark, then configure the appropriate parameter in the software service.

Although having the ADS configured makes it very easy to configure these parameters, it is not necessarily needed.

Hope this helps,

Harshal.
