Filter dialog boxes
The filter dialog boxes (Graph Settings, Global Filter, and Analysis Summary Filter) enable you to filter the data that is displayed in the graph or report.
When adding a graph, the filter and sort button is displayed which enables you to filter and sort data before the graph is displayed.
|To access||Use one of the following:|
Some fields below only appear in some of the filter dialog boxes.
User interface elements are described below:
|Filter Condition||Select criteria and values for each filter condition that you want to employ. The applicable filter conditions are displayed for each graph. For details on each graphs filter conditions, see the chapter on the relevant graph.|
|Criteria||Select "=" (equals) or "<>" (does not equal).|
The filter conditions are grouped into three value types (discrete, continuous, and time-based).
A discrete value is a distinct integer (whole number) or string value such as Transaction Name or Vuser ID. Select the check box(es) of the value(s) that you want to include in your filter. You can also customize your filter by entering wild cards to depict any single character or any series of characters.
For some filter conditions, one of the following dialog boxes opens to enable you to specify additional filtering details:
|Transaction Percentile||The Summary Report contains a percentile column showing the response time of 90% of transactions (90% of transactions that fall within this amount of time). To change the value of the default 90 percentile, enter a new figure in the Transaction Percentile box.|
|Set Default||Displays the default criteria and values for each filter condition.|
|Clear All||Deletes all of the information you entered in the dialog box.|
|Group By settings||Use these settings to sort the graph display by grouping the data. You can group the data by:
|Clear all graph filters and the Summary Filter, before applying the Global Filter settings||
When this check box is selected for the Global Filter, Analysis clears all user-defined settings in the graph filters (including Group By settings) and in the Analysis Summary Filter, and then applies the current Global Filter conditions.
Note: The Transaction Percentile setting in the Analysis Summary Filter is not affected by the Global Filter.
