IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version

Performance Analysis and Reporting

To search for completed requests/transactions that participated in composite requests, use Performance Analysis and Reporting. Create a Trend Report, then drill down to a Decomposition Report, and then to a Detail report to find individual requests/transactions that are part of composite requests.

Performance Analysis and Reporting displays the Composite Request Indicator only for home requests, and not for the other participating requests/transactions. For details on participating requests and home requests, see The scope of composite requests

The following procedure describes how to locate composite requests using Performance Analysis and Reporting.

To locate composite requests using the Performance Analysis and Reporting

  1. View a Request/Transaction Analysis Trend Report for servers that you believe might have served home requests of composite requests. Choose appropriate Report Filtering Options and Date Range Settings.

    A Trend Report is displayed.

  2. Choose an appropriate Decomposition option (Additional Detail selection) and time period.

    A Decomposition Report is displayed.

  3. View the requests/transactions that comprise the Decomposition Report by selecting an appropriate segment of the Decomposition Report.

    A Detail Report is displayed.

The resulting Detail Report displays a list of the requests/transactions included in the segment of the Decomposition Report you selected.

The results display: Request/Transaction Name, Request/Transaction Type, Response Time, CPU Time, Server Name, Timestamp, and Number of Records. ITCAM for Application Diagnostics identifies that a request was a home request of a composite request by displaying the composite request icon next to its Request/Transaction Name.
