OverviewYou want to monitor an application in your network this is how would do it
ResolutionPre-requisite : If the application is already added under Objects - Application, well and good. otherwise go ahead and create a custom application for the one you want to monitor
To monitor it
1. Go to Monitor - Applications: Look for the particular app and click on it to drill down to the host level information
2. In version 7 and above - you can create a custom report in the solution center for that application and get all sort of stats for the application utilization
3. Create a policy for that application and you can go to Monitor - Control to view the utilization of the policy, hence the application
4. If you do step 3, then you can also go to Real Time - Conversations and look at the real time stats for the policy (hence application) by clicking on "show policies" on the top right. When you see traffic hit the policy, it will show up in the real time conversations and hence you can see what is happening with it real time.
