How does the .NET Framework agent handle application naming?
In the absence of any specific agent configuration options being set, the agent will name the application based on its virtual path. For example, if the application is hosted at
https://<hostname>/MyApp, then the application will be named MyApp.
If the application is hosted at the root of a Site (i.e. the virtual path is
/) then the name of the Site will be used as the application name.
To override the automatically assigned application name, set the value of
application.name in the application's
web.config file as documented here.
