Overview of AppNeta

AppNeta delivers precise insights for identifying issues within networks or applications, utilizing a blend of active synthetic testing and passive analysis of network traffic.

Active monitoring in AppNeta entails dispatching test data through the network and examining the responses to evaluate network performance indicators. AppNeta can be set up to forward these monitoring results to LogZilla. This method is highly effective in understanding user experiences across different network environments.

LogZilla App for AppNeta

Rule Function

The rule performs the following primary functions:

  1. Extract Event Details: It extracts detailed information from the log message.
  2. Rewrite Log Message: It reformats the log message to present the extracted information in a more user-friendly format.
  3. User Tags Creation: It generates user tags from these event details for applications in dashboards, alerts, and emails.

Incoming Log Format

AppNeta event messages are structured as single-line JSON elements. These messages contain consistent fields for event details and a section for tags that may vary between logs.
