We are using APM v8.1 Base Private, and would like to do "similar monitoring activity" like with ITM v6.3 and its Robotic Response Time (RRT) v7.4 agent and RPT v8 or v9 script. How?
RRT v7.4 agent and RPT v8 or RPT v9 scripts are not available in APM v8.1 offering
They are 'replaced' in APM offering by :
APM "Synthetic playback" agent (agent code = SN), and Selenium scripts.
APM v8.1 Private, Base does not include APM Synthetic playback agent
it's included in APM v8.1 Private, Advanced offering.
As documented here:
To see which agents are included in an offering or add-on and the agent and data collector capabilities, see Capabilities.
and when you click on 'Capabilities' link, you reach this page:
it contains a table, with :
