APM generates all of the unique combinations of the locations, target urls, and workflows you selected for your web app. Each of those combinations is called a web path.

On the web paths page, the icon in the first column represents the latest results. Click a row to see the timeline for a target. The APM test timeline page continuously plots experience monitoring results; scrub across the time range chart to zoom in on a particular time period.

OK
HTTP status 200 was returned for all milestones in the script. If an alert profile is applied, no violations occurred.
Error/Violated
An HTTP error status code was returned for at least one milestone in the script. If an alert profile is applied, the at least one milestone violated.
Failed
HTTP status of all milestones is ‘failed’.
Disabled
Web monitoring is disabled.
Unlicensed
Web monitor source or target is unlicensed.

End user experience

The end user experience chart shows, of the total time needed to complete the user action script, how much of that time was due to the server, network, or browser each. The pie chart illustrates the average over the filtered time period. Changes in monitoring configuration are marked by a thin grey line. Hover over the timeline and click a blue pip to see the results of a script execution. A marker is placed when results violate or clear a condition in the web path alert profile. Hover for event details.

Milestone breakdown

The milestone breakdown chart shows, of the total time needed to complete the user action script, how much of that was due to each milestone. The pie chart illustrates the average over the filtered time period. Changes in monitoring configuration are marked by a thin grey line. Hover over the timeline and click a blue pip to see the results of a script execution. A marker is placed when results violate or clear a condition in the web path alert profile. Hover for event details.

HTTP throughput

The pie chart illustrates the average over the filtered time period.

Total capacity
Taken from the Delivery monitoring analysis, the maximum throughput for the path.
HTTP throughput
From the time you receive the first byte, how fast did you get the rest of the resource?
HTTP performance (overall)
Compares http throughput to total capacity.

Response time

The response time chart shows you how much of the response is due to the network and how much is due to the server.

Total response
The amount of time that it takes to establish a TCP connection and receive the first byte (i.e., SYN to first byte).
Server response
Total response time minus network response time.
Network response
Assuming no server delay, the minimum amount of time it takes to establish a TCP connection and receive the first byte (i.e., time on the wire). For HTTP APM calculates this as 2*RTT; for HTTPS it’s 4*RTT. Why? RTT is the time from A to B and B to A. So from TCP handshake to first byte: for SYN to SYN-ACK we take 1 RTT, and from ACK to first byte we take one more. In case of HTTPS, a couple more round trips are necessary for the SSL handshake.

Compare web paths

When you have multiple web paths that share a common attribute, e.g. they have the same source or target, or use the same set of user actions, APM can show you performance results for all those web paths in one place.
