Reporting enables you to create reports based on metrics that AppDynamics collects and then export them to PDF documents. Reports provide information to use for long-term analysis and planning.

AppDynamics provides report templates that you can configure for your purposes. You can also create a report from the data displayed in the Metric Browser.

Using the Report Templates

To access and use any of the report templates:

1. From the left navigation pane, click Analyze -> Reporting.
The Report Browser is displayed.

2. Click the Generate Report button on the report template that you want to use. 
The report template is displayed.

3. Configure the report in the template.

4. Click the Export PDF button to export the report to a PDF document. In the dialog that appears, name the report and click Save.

Business Transaction Summary

The Business Transaction Summary Report summarizes the following indicators for the Business Transactions that you select:

  • Service Levels
  • Time in Milliseconds
  • Calls
  • Calls / Minute
  • Errors
  • Error %
  • Slow Requests
  • Very Slow Requests
  • Stalled Requests,
  • Tier
  • Type

In the template, configure time range covered by the report, the Business Transactions to be summarized, and the sorting parameters.

You can start entering the name of the Business Transaction in the search field to locate the Business Transactions.

Business Transaction Trend

The Business Transaction Trend Report shows the following key performance indicators for the specified Business Transaction.

Problems

  • Policy Violations
  • Stalls
  • Abnormal Slow Rate
  • Abnormal Error Rate
  • Other Problems

Summary Statistics

  • Load in Calls 
  • Load in Calls  / Minute (includes graph)
  • Average Response Time in Milliseconds (includes graph)
  • Error %
  • Total Errors 
  • Errors / Minute (includes graph)

Response Time Breakdown - absolute and percentage

  • Normal 
  • Slow (includes graph)
  • Very Slow (includes graph)
  • Stalls (includes graph)

In the template, configure the time range covered by the report  and the Business Transaction to be covered in the report,
You can start entering the name of the Business Transaction in the search field to locate the Business Transaction.

Hardware Utilization

The Hardware Utilization Report shows the following hardware utilization metrics for the selected tiers:

  • Number of Nodes
  • Current CPU %
  • Average CPU %
  • Current Memory %
