The Ajax Dashboard is divided into three areas:
- A summary, with a waterfall graph of the entire load sequence. To see details for each set of data, use the Trends/Details checkboxes.
- Two sections of Trends/Details across time for the main performance categories
- Overall performance
- Time taken by the server to process the request through the browser's incorporation of the data into the HTML document
The Ajax Dashboard Summary Section
This section gives you a quick overview of the item's performance over time.
Key performance indicators - End User Response Time, Load, Cache Hits and Views with Errors - across the time period selected in the time frame dropdown from the upper right side of the GUI - are displayed across the top of the summary area.
A waterfall graph displays the average times needed for each aspect of the ajax request load process.
For more information on what each of the metrics measures, hover over its name on the left side of the graph. A popup appears with a definition. See the graphic above for an illustration. For more detailed information, see Browser RUM Metrics.
To see detailed breakouts of the data behind the graph, check the Trend/Detail box by the data group in which you are interested.
This section displays detailed trend graphs of key performance metrics measured across the selected timeframe. To see detailed information for a specific moment, hover over the graph and a popup with that information appears. To see any of the listed total metrics in the context of the metric browser, click the desired value (shown in link blue) on the left side of the panel. The metric browser appears, with that metric displayed. You can then use the metric browser to compare other related values in a single display.
This section displays detailed trend graphs of server processing and delivery time. To see detailed information for a specific moment, hover over the graph and a popup with that information appears. These metrics measure the total time for processing all server-side business transactions for this item
the total time for processing all server-side business transactions for this item
the total time for the browser to completely download all of the Ajax responses
- the time for the browser to complete any Ajax callbacks
- if correlated with a server-side app agent, links to any related business transactions on the server
To ensure you get the most accurate server time and related business-transaction times, upgrade your server agents to version 3.8.0 or newer. Otherwise in some cases your times will be based on averages rather than the exact time of the individual event. To get the most accurate times using pre-3.8.0 agents, you should enable JS_FOOTER injection, either through using Automatic Injection or Assisted Injection-Using Attribute Injection.
