The Fabasoft app.telemetry consists of four software components:

  • Fabasoft app.telemetry server – including the following services/daemons
    • Configuration
    • Server
    • Sync
    • Worker
    • Ecomm
    • Web service
  • Fabasoft app.telemetry agent
  • Fabasoft app.telemetry web browser client (hosted as web service on app.telemetry server)
  • Fabasoft app.telemetry Software-Telemetry web service (also known as WebAPI)

A Fabasoft app.telemetry installation is always made up of one central Fabasoft app.telemetry server (which can be installed either on Linux or Microsoft Windows) and many Fabasoft app.telemetry agents (one agent for every target server – could be Linux or Microsoft Windows).

Heterogeneous installations with Fabasoft app.telemetry agents on different platforms are supported.

The Fabasoft app.telemetry Software-Telemetry web service (also known as WebAPI) is required for End-2-End instrumented applications using the Fabasoft app.telemetry JavaScript SDK which will send the telemetry data from an instrumented web page to the web service which will forward the data to the app.telemetry agent. In such an environment the app.telemetry web service has to be installed on some agent platforms additionally to the agent package.

Fabasoft app.telemetry also provides some optional software components that might be installed as required for some special use cases:

  • Fabasoft app.telemetry web server instrumentation modules (Apache, IIS)
    • mod_telemetry (instrumentation module for Apache)
    • telemetry_iis (instrumentation module for IIS)
  • Fabasoft app.telemetry syslog forwarder (rsyslog event forwarder module)
