Introduction

This is a list of APM tutorials that you can try in your own OCI environment or create a Oracle Cloud Free Tier accout to try out one.

Before You Begin

Oracle Cloud Free Tier provides a free time-limited promotional trial that allows you to explore a wide range of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure products and a set of Always Free offers that never expire. You can use Oracle Cloud Free Tier to try out one of our tutorials in an actual Oracle Cloud environment.


Installing a Java Agent on a Tomcat Server

Tomcat is a popular web server or servlet container that can host Java web applications. APM Java Agents can record application server spans and metrics and send them to Application Performance Monitoring Cloud Service for analysis. If you are interested in monitoring Java web applications deployed on Tomcat, review this tutorial to learn how to install an APM Java Agent on a Tomcat Application Server:
