The Diagnostics integration with Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) allows you to monitor and analyze the performance of Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE), .NET-connected, SAP, Oracle, and other complex environments.
During a performance test, you can drill down into Diagnostics data for the whole test or for a particular transaction. After the test, you can use LoadRunner Analysis to analyze offline diagnostics data generated during the test.
When configuring a performance test to use J2EE/.NET Diagnostics, you can instruct ALM to capture a percentage of server requests which occur outside the context of any Vuser transaction.
The benefit of enabling this functionality is that calls into a back-end VM can be captured even in the case where:
The probe is not capturing RMI calls
RMI calls cannot be captured (perhaps because an unsupported application container is being used)
The application uses some other mechanism for communications between multiple VMs
