User Scenarios

Scenario 1: Verifying high server response time

Upon returning from vacation, you see that response time is higher than usual for one of the servers in group ABC. You notice from the Heap Dump Management page that the server is performing heap dumps regularly which is causing the slowness in the response time. You enter the audit trail to find out who scheduled the heap dump. You contact that person and learn that the heap dumps are scheduled for troubleshooting a suspected memory leak in the application.

Scenario 2: Verifying MOD level change

In your role as a production support engineer you observe that the MOD level of a data collector in the production environment has been set to L2 instead of the expected MOD L1. You ask the Administrator to search the audit trail and find out who changed the MOD level, and find that an application support engineer is troubleshooting a production issue in the application.
