In AppDynamics SaaS version 4.5.15, retention of one-minute granularity of metrics data in the Controller is increased from one day to eight days. Throughout the AppDynamics SaaS version 4.5.15 interface, you can see the increase in metrics data granularity in time-series charts and grid-type windows or widgets. For example, you can see the increase in metrics granularity retention in the Metrics Browser, Custom Dashboards, Database Monitoring, Server Monitoring, Network Visibility Monitoring, End User Monitoring, and Mobile Monitoring pages. As part of this metrics data retention change for SaaS version 4.5.15, metrics data are rolled up to a lower granularity in the user interface automatically when large time ranges are selected. You can select shorter time ranges to view more granular metrics. The number of data points for any given period that is displayed in AppDynamics charts and grids depends on the browser and monitor resolution.

When a business transaction (BT), that represents the endpoint of a service, calls another BT that represents the endpoint of another service, that is a "cross-BT" call. This is typical of One-App-Per-Service architectures, where multiple applications each correspond to different services and BTs represent service endpoints.
