Application Batch process Monitoring

Instana Application monitoring services are not reporting the data statistics as expected. Basically the service in question is a database one which is running on DB2 db. Whenever a batch execution happens there's a bunch of calls being made by the application/batch server towards the database. Those calls are basically a set of sql's that fetches/updates/selects/commits the data to/from the database. Unfortunately, calls are not reported as expected. Neither we are getting the end points, data flow or the top running sql's running on this DB service.


Infrastructure monitoring of that host db from the instana console does shows that the batch is under execution and there were a bunch of commits, selects, updates happening on the database (from infrastructure monitoring). A case was opened with IBM support #TS013654681 after which the support said that the batch process monitoring for current application (Curam) is not being supported and opted to use Instana Java SDK as a workaround which does includes code changes which is quite impossible. It was recommended by the support to create a feature request to include this application monitoring of batch process as a new idea for supporting Curam or any standalone application.

PS: Batch process is not just a curam application batch process rather it could be any standalone java process. Please refer to the IBM case number for your reference.
