The Browser App Dashboard gives you a high-level overview of how your application is performing, as described on this page. 

Access the Browser App Dashboard View

  1. Open the browser application in which you are interested.
  2. On the left navigation bar, select Browser App Dashboard.
  3. Click the tab for the view you want to access.


The Browser App Overview displays a set of configurable widgets, showing multiple graphs and lists featuring common high-level indicators of application performance. You can delete widgets using the X in the upper right corner and re-add them using the add widgets icon.  

Geo Dashboard

The Browser App Geo Dashboard displays key performance metrics by geographic location, based on page loads.

The dashboard is divided into three panels:

  • A main panel in the upper left displaying geographic distribution of end users and the status of their requests on a map, if you selected the map view icon, or on a grid if you clicked the grid view icon.
  • A panel on the right displaying key timings.
  • A lower panel with dynamics trend graphs of KPIs.

The metrics displayed throughout the dashboard are for the region currently selected on the map or in the grid. For example, if you zoom down from world view to France on the map, the summary panels and the trend graphs display data for France.

If you are using Synthetic with this application, you can choose to see either RUM or Synthetic data in the Geo Dashboard.

See Browser RUM Metrics for definitions of the metrics.

Map View Labels

The map view displays load circles with labels for countries that are in the key timing metrics given in the right panel. Some countries and regions, however, are only displayed in the grid view. 

Regions and Countries

Regions are subdivisions of a country, such as a state, province, or city. In the default map view, key performance metrics are displayed by country. You can check Show regions in Global View check box to view the key performance metrics by region. The grid view, like the map view, by default displays key performance metrics by country, but can also be configured to show the metrics by region. Because the map view displays fewer regions than the grid view, if you do not see a region displayed in the map view, switch to the grid view.

See Browser RUM Countries and Regions by Geo Dashboard for a list of the countries and regions available in the map and grid views.

Unknown Locations 

An unknown location is one for which the agent cannot determine the country from which the request originated.

You may also see metrics reported for a location named "Anonymous Proxy". The data for Anonymous Proxy represents the aggregated metrics from one or more private IP addresses that the agent cannot identify.

One of the effects of Unknown regions is that it possible for a country to display as slow (red circles) on the global map, but when you drill down to the country all its regions appear normal (green circles). Or a country may display as normal on the global map, but some subregions may display as slow when you drill down.

Browser Snapshots 

Browser snapshots capture and display a broad set of metrics associated with a single request. You can drill down into errors, and, if your app server is instrumented with server-side app agents, see any server-side transaction snapshots associated with that request. For more detailed information, see Browser Snapshots.

Usage Stats

The Browser App Usage Stats presents aggregated page-load usage data based on your users' browser type and device/platform.

The Browsers dashboard helps you discover:

  • The slowest browsers in terms of total end-user response time.
  • The slowest browsers to render the response page.
  • The browsers that most of your end users use.
  • The browsers that most of your end users use in a particular country or region.

The Devices dashboard shows mobile access only via browsers on the device. The dashboard helps you discover:

  • The slowest devices in terms of total end-user response time
  • The slowest devices to connect to the server
  • The devices that most of your end users use
  • The devices that most of your end users use in a particular country or region
