Parts of the Controller UI for Mobile RUM rely on the processing done by the Events Service, including some of the widgets in the Mobile App Dashboard Overview, Network Requests Analyze, and Crash Analyze.
For the Mobile App Dashboard, Network Requests Analyze, and Crash Analyze, you can choose widgets to display the metrics collected using either averages or percentiles.
A percentile is a measure that indicates a value below which a given percentage of values in a set falls: for example, the 99th percentile means that 99% of all values are below this level.
Using percentiles can be a good way to reduce the impact of extreme outliers in performance metrics, which can be useful in the often noisy environments of end-user experience monitoring. Percentiles are also displayed in the Metric Browser.
- enable or disable percentile display of metrics.
- set up to four different percentile levels to be applied to metrics.
Access Configure Percentile Metrics
From the Configuration > Mobile App Group Configuration, click the Settings tab and navigate to the Configure Percentile Metrics section.
Configure Percentile Metrics
You can change the percentiles which are used to evaluate data via the Events Service.
- Check the box to enable percentile metric display.
- Add up to four percentile levels to collect. Each value must be a whole number between 1 and 99.
If you change the percentiles to collect new values, it takes some time for the recalculation to take place. If you look in the Metric Browser you see metrics based on the old percentiles until the moment that you update the values, when they change to reflect the change.
