Web Tier and Business Tier are related to the type of transaction observed on a specific application server monitored by the AD Java and .NET agents.
Only one AD agent can be associated with an application server
The Agent views the transaction data it captures and decides whether the transaction data is web or business related
This is internal coded mechanism - there is no mechanism to intervene in the decision or change it
Moreover - since there is one agent per application server it will decide its type whether Web or Business according to the type of most transaction that go through that serer - so if you have both types on the same application server it will most likely be classified as Web
Hi Shelly- I understand now. What are basis of AD and .Net Agents in classifying the transaction?
its documented here:
The assignment of an application server as a Web or Business tier depends how App Visibility Manager recognizes most of the transactions on the server:
Web: A monitored server where most transactions are Transaction-type requests, that is, the server is the first to receive transaction requests within an application. For example, a web server that mostly receives end-user transaction requests, or a server that mostly receives requests from a non-monitored component (such as a PHP server), is recognized as a Web tier.
Business: A monitored server where most transactions are Request-type requests, that is, the server receives most requests from a monitored server.
