Web path performance charts provide historical performance information for each web path you create.

View web path performance history

You can access the web path performance history from either the Web Paths page, the Web App Groups page, or the Web Dashboard page. By default, the last hour of data is displayed in the charts.

To view the web path performance history from the Web Paths page:

  1. Navigate to Experience > Web Paths.
  2. Find the web path you are interested in.
  3. Click the web path you want to view.
    • The historical web path performance charts are displayed.

To view the web path performance history from the Web App Groups page:

  1. Navigate to Experience > Web App Groups.
  2. Expand the web app group containing the web path you want to view.
  3. Click the web path you want to view.
    • The historical web path performance charts are displayed.

To view the web path performance history from the Web Dashboard page:

  1. Navigate to Experience > Web Dashboard.
  2. Click the web dashboard you are interested in.
  3. Expand the web app group containing the web path you want to view.
  4. Click the web path you want to view.
    • The historical web path performance charts are displayed.

Adjust chart timeline

You can adjust the chart timeline so that the charts display only the data for the period you are interested in. There are three ways to do this: using the zoom links, using the date and time selector, and using the timeline slider.

To adjust the chart timeline using the zoom links:

  1. Navigate to the web path performance history page for the web path you are interested in.
  2. In the Zoom field within the Selected time range pane, click a predefined time range.
  3. Drag the slider to the date and time you are interested in.
    • The charts display the data for the selected period.

To adjust the chart timeline using the date and time selector:

  1. Navigate to the web path performance history page for the web path you are interested in.
  2. In the date and time selector field at the top right of the Selected time range pane, specify the “from” and “to” date and time.
    • The charts display the data for the selected period.
    • Drag the slider to adjust the selected period.

To adjust the chart timeline using the timeline slider:

  1. Navigate to the web path performance history page for the web path you are interested in.
  2. On the slider bar at the bottom of the Selected time range pane, drag the left bar to the start of the desired period and the right bar to the end of the desired period.
    • The charts display the data for the selected period.
    • Drag the slider to adjust the selected period.

Historical web path performance charts

The web path performance history page displays a number of historical charts that provide different views into the performance history of a web path over the selected time period.

End User Experience chart

The End User Experience chart shows the total time needed to complete the script associated with the web path. In addition:

  • The total time is divided into the time taken by the network, the server, and the browser.
  • Changes in monitoring configuration are marked by a vertical grey bar.
  • A marker is placed on the timeline where results violate or clear a condition in the web path alert profile. Hover over the marker for event details.
  • Hover over the chart and click a blue pip to see the results of a single script execution (web test).
  • The pie chart shows the average over selected time period.

Milestone Breakdown chart

The Milestone Breakdown chart shows the total time needed to complete the script associated with the web path. In addition:

  • The total time is divided into the time taken by each milestone in the script.
  • Changes in monitoring configuration are marked by a vertical grey bar.
  • A marker is placed on the timeline where results violate or clear a condition in the web path alert profile. Hover over the marker for event details.
  • Hover over the chart and click a blue pip to see the results of a single script execution (web test).
  • The pie chart shows the average over the selected time period.

Apdex Score chart

The Apdex chart shows the overall Apdex score. In addition:

  • The overall Apdex score is divided into the Apdex scores for each milestone in the script.
  • Changes in monitoring configuration are marked by a vertical grey bar.
  • Hover over the chart and click a blue pip to see the results of a single script execution (web test).

HTTP Throughput chart

The HTTP Throughput chart shows the total capacity of the path from the monitoring point to the target as well as an indication of the percentage of total capacity used by HTTP traffic generated by the script. If a large percentage of the total capacity is used by HTTP traffic it indicates that network capacity should be reviewed as it may be a source of web path performance issues. In addition:

  • Changes in monitoring configuration are marked by a vertical grey bar.
  • The pie chart shows the average over the selected time period.

Response Time chart

The Response Time chart shows the total response time (the time it takes to establish a TCP connection with the target and receive the first byte of data). In addition:

  • The total response time is divided into the response time taken by the network and the server.
    • Minimum network response time calculation for HTTP is: 2 * RTT.
    • Minimum network response time calculation for HTTPS is: 4 * RTT.
    • RTT (Round Trip Time) is time from A to B and B to A.
      • For HTTP this is SYN to SYN-ACK (1 RTT) and ACK to first byte (1 RTT).
      • For HTTPS there are an additional two RTTs for the SSL handshake.
    • Server response time = Total response time - Network response time
  • Changes in monitoring configuration are marked by a vertical grey bar.
  • The pie chart shows the average over the selected time period.
