with a custom sensor, can i monitor which tests are being taken per user on a certain application?



I would like to find out if there is a way to create a custom sensor to monitor which tests are being taken in certain web applications by specific users, also if I can monitor the users that are logged on to that specific web site or web app. Thanks in advance for the reply.

In Linux - yes

1. you can write a shell script using bash as an example or python/php

2. then you need to install/configure and run SNMPD (Yum install net-snmp*)

3. modify your /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf (see what I did to manage value of parallel sessions to our production environment


4. then create a custom SNMP sensor (Custom OID should map to your new executable) http://screencast.com/t/gMucke0OMdol
