Define a Request/Transaction Analysis report

The Request/Transaction Analysis report provides a whole picture about the behavior on the application server. After defining the request/transaction analysis, several reports become available: Trend report, Decomposition report, Request report detail, and Trace report. Each of these reports provides more specific data for understanding the application's performance at every level.

To define a Request/Transaction Analysis report:

      Performance Analysis > Create Application Reports > Request/Transaction

  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.

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