Splitting applications

In case Plumbr has bundled together different types of software under the same application, you might wish to split it into two or more applications. This can for example happen in situations where Plumbr Agents capture data being accessed via the http://localhost:8080 interface from different web applications being deployed in different developer machines.

You can split applications by altering the contents of the plumbr.properties file located next to the Plumbr Java Agent. You can use this file to modify (or add, if not present) the parameter appId referring to the identity of the application you wish to use, similarly to the following example:

appId=Billing Test.

After this change all new transactions arriving to this JVM will be linked to the ID you chose. The existing transactions will not be affected.
