My question is not about Orca, per se, but, I'm hoping
that it's not
so far off-topic.

We have a suite of performance monitoring and alerting
tools, one being
Orca, and I need to tie them all together into a
framework that we can
all use.

What I mean by "framework" is this:

Let's say, I want to monitor app XYZ off of our
Intranet home page. I
set up an agent, which performs a series of
transactions against XYZ.
These "transactions" are meant to mimic an end-user

These transactions have dependencies, for instance:

- - the network must be up
- - the home page must be available
- - login to the app (unauthenticated, in this case)
must be successful
- - the backend database must be up and responsive to
the request that
XYZ makes against it.

What I want to do, is have a centralized method for
our apps groups to
request monitoring, define "transactions", define
dependencies, (as well
as anticedents), define remediation steps for the SAs,

Is anyone doing this sort of thing or can anyone point
me to some usefule
information regarding apps monitoring?
