Need a "Hostname" field when using a Remote monitoring sensor
With many of the Instana sensors that do Remote Monitoring (MQ, MQ FTE, DB2, Oracle, etc.), there isn't a field that allows a customer to identify the hostname of the remotely monitored system. I'm working with a customer that it integrating Instana with Big Panda and ServiceNow and those tools require a unique hostname field. With Instana, the hostname, is the hostname of the Agent which isn't correct.
The customer is looking for a field that could be use with global custom payloads where they could map a field that includes the hostname of the monitored server to a specific global custom payload field.
When doing remote monitoring, we should ALWAYS include a field such as "RemoteHost" or "RemoteHostname" that would include the fully qualified hostname of the remotely monitored system.
Do not place IBM confidential, company confidential, or personal information into any field.
