Monitoring on-premises Node.js applications

You can configure the Node.js data collector to monitor the on-premises Node.js applications running on stand-alone Docker containers, VMs, or physical nodes (xLinux only). The Node.js data collector sends monitoring data to the Monitoring server.

Before you begin

Check that you downloaded the configuration package to obtain the server information, for more information, see Obtaining the server configuration information.

Ensure that you installed the data collector, for more information, see Installing the Node.js data collector.

About this task

Configure the Node.js data collector using the file that you extract from nodejs_datacollector_2019.4.0.tgz, and ibm-cloud-apm-dc-configpack.tar file that you download from the server.
