Using the J2EE and .NET Breakdown Options

J2EE and .NET breakdown options are described.

To access

Use one of the following to access breakdown options:

  • <J2EE & .NET Graphs> View > J2EE & .NET Diagnostics

  • <J2EE & .NET Diagnostics Graphs> > select transaction > short-cut menu > J2EE & .NET Diagnostics

  • See toolbar options for each breakdown level

Notes
  • The breakdown menu options and buttons are not displayed until an element (transaction, server request, layer) is selected.

  • If there is no URI in the SQL, URI-None appears in front of the full measurement description in the Measurement Description dialog box.

J2EE and .NET Diagnostics Graphs Overview

User interface elements are described below :

UI Element Description
<Right-click> transaction in Average Response Time Graph

Choose J2EE/.NET Diagnostics > Show Server Requests. A new graph opens showing the breakdown of the selected transaction. The name of the transaction is displayed in the Breaking Measurement box.

You can view the full SQL statement for a selected SQL element by choosing Show measurement description from the Legend window right-click menu. The Measurement Description dialog box opens displaying the name of the selected measurement and the full SQL statement.

To view transaction properties for the breakdown measurement, click the Breaking Measurement button. To disable this feature, choose View > Display Options, and clear the Show Breaking Measurement check box.

Select View > J2EE/.NET Diagnostics > Break down the server request to layers, or click the measurement breakdown button in the toolbar above the graph.

Note: The option in the J2EE/.NET Diagnostics menu, and the tool tip of the measurement breakdown button, vary according to the element that you want to break down. For example, when you select a server request, the menu option and tool tip are Break down server request to layers.

Select View > J2EE/.NET Diagnostics > Show VM, or click the Show VM button in the toolbar above the graph. This breaks the data down to the application host name (VM).

Select View > J2EE/.NET Diagnostics > Undo Break down the server request to layers, or click the Undo <Measurement Breakdown> button in the toolbar above the graph.

Note: The option in the J2EE/.NET Diagnostics menu, and the tool tip of the measurement breakdown button, vary according to the element whose breakdown you want to undo. For example, when you select a layer, the menu option and tool tip are Undo break down server request to layers.

Select View > J2EE/.NET Diagnostics > Hide VM, or click the Hide VM button in the toolbar above the graph.

Display the chain of call or call stack statistics in the measurements tree window: Drag the orange time line on to the graph to the time specifying the end of the period for which you want to view data, and select View > J2EE/.NET Diagnostics > Show Chain of Calls, or click the Show Chain of Calls button in the toolbar above the graph.

Note: A measurement that is broken down in the Average Method Response Time in Transactions graph will be different from the same measurement broken down in the J2EE/.NET - Transaction Time Spent in Element graph. This is because the J2EE/.NET - Average Method Response Time in Transactions graph displays the average transaction time, whereas the J2EE/.NET - Transaction Time Spent in Element graph displays the average time per transaction event (sum of method execution time).
