vCOps and application response time

How can I best view application response time in vCOps - so that I see from the application's perspective what the response time is as close to the user would meaure it as possible?  For example, install an in-guest agent, bring the data into vCOps with an adapter, create a dashboard and view the metrics?

Note - I don't want to just view memory, cpu disk and network utilization statistics from the vantage point of outside of the VM - but look at what the application is actually experiencing from a vantage point of inside the VM such as an in-guest agent would provide.

The goal is to standardize as much as possible so that I don't have 50 products out there - 1 for every application.

Any recommendations, experiences appreciated.

If the data is stored in a SQL database, you can use the adapter to pull it in to vCOps.

We're not collecting true end user experience, but we would like to.  The closest we have is a tool which collects simulated login times for an application in a SQL Server database.  We pull that in to vCOps with a SQL adapter instance; the metrics can then be used on a dashboard (i.e. metric graph widget).

If none of the vCloud management suite products can integrate with vCOps to accomplish this, there has to be some third party agents with a vCOps adapter that can accomplish this I would imagine?

Does anyone have any input or experiences in making this work?
