Within NR Infrastructure page, there is the left page for “All hosts”. Within that pane, there is a link for “APPLICATIONS”. Presently it allows us to filter Infra to hosts where APM agent is installed. There is no way to list hosts where APM agent is not installed - like DB server and other servers we monitor via NR Infra.
Let us use appName (or other variable name) in newrelic-infra.yml as a valid Application Name for grouping within the “APPLICATIONS” link. Those which have APM agent installed will have link next to it as we have now “View in APM”. Those that do not have APM agents installed, will be visible for filtering but will not have the link “View in APM”. The benefit is that we can still filter by Application names for infrastructure irrespective of whether APM agent is installed or not.
I know we can create Filter Sets. But having it grouped by Application name “automatically” and viewed within the “APPLICATIONS” filter section makes more sense as it is all related to Infrastructure (that the Infrastructure Tab not APM Tab). This when we add new hosts, just by configuring the YML file, we will be getting to filter based on Application Name without need for APM agent.
