IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version

Define a Portlet report

To compare the response time of a portlet across multiple pages, or debug an application rather than the entire portal server, you can run a portlet report. This will show the performance of a portlet and not the whole request. Then you can see if the same portlet has different response times on different pages. Drilling down allows you to get detailed performance information on a per-portlet basis. You can see how a portlet performs across the different pages that it's used on, which can help determine whether the problem you are encountering is caused by the portlet itself or by the things surrounding it on the page. 

To define a Portlet report:

  1. From the top navigation, click...

      Performance Analysis > Create Application Reports > Portal

  2. Select yes or no to decide if you want the report to recur and click Next.

    For the purpose of these instructions we are selecting no. If you want further instructions on scheduling reports, refer to Define a Schedule report.

  3. Select the group and the server from the list box.

  4. Click Next to continue creating the report. The Report Filtering options page opens. It displays the options based on the Report Type you select.

  5. Set the following options to filter the records returned in the report:

    • Metric

      The item you want to measure: Throughput per hour, Throughput per minute, Throughput per second, Response Time and CPU Time.

    • Nested Request Type

      Portal page and Portlet. You must set this to Portlet for a Portlet report.

    • Portal Page Name

      Type in a specific portal page name to show only those portlets which are contained in the portal pages whose name matches the one you specified.

    • Portlet Name

      Type in a specific portlet name to show only those portlets that contain the portlet name specified.

  6. Click Next to continue creating the report. The Date Range settings page opens.

  7. Set the parameters to restrict the data returned in your report. For detailed instructions, see Understanding the Date Range settings.

  8. Click View Report to view the report.

  9. Click Save if you want to save the report. For more information see View saved reports.
