On the Application Settings page of an application in the Tracing Analysis console, you can manage the application and related tags. For example, you can specify whether to configure servers to be represented by server names and whether to enable data collection for the application. You can also manage custom tags for the application and delete the application.

Background information

By default, the servers of an application are represented by IP addresses in the Tracing Analysis console. However, on the Application Settings page, you can configure servers to be represented by server names.

Note The configuration applies only to data that is collected after the configuration takes effect. After you configure servers to be represented by server names, server names will be displayed to represent servers. However, IP addresses are retained in the data collected before the configuration change.
Figure 1. The following figure shows that servers are represented by IP addresses.
