Transactions Mapping and Grouping Dialog Box

This dialog box enables you to map and group similar transactions in your production data or in your performance test results. Grouping and mapping aggregates the data of the grouped transactions.

How to Work with PAL

Mapping Production to Testing > Transactions Section

The pane enables you to map between production and performance test transactions in order to have comparable data in your report. This is relevant in cases where transactions that measure the same business process have different names.

For example the transaction for measuring the search page is called Search in the VuGen script whereas the production system calls it Find. Mapping between the transactions makes them comparable.

User interface elements are described below:

Internal Transactions Grouping > Load Test or Production Transactions Section

This pane enables you to group similar transactions in your production data or in your performance test results. This is important when similar transactions are given different names. For example the Login transaction has a suffix added to denote the script it's in, so that several Login transactions are measured (for example. login_1, login_2, login_3, etc.) although they all measure the same business process. Grouping will aggregate the data of the grouped transactions.

User interface elements are described below:

Description

Clears details in the Group Details pane.

This icon indicates that the group is created using regular expressions. The group contains measurements that are currently displayed under Available Measurements, as well as any future measurements.

Group's Name & Selected Measurements

Enter a group name. Use the arrows to move measurements between Selected Measurements and Available Measurements. To save the group, click the Group button.

Available Measurements

Lists the available transaction measurements.

  • Use the arrows to move measurements between Available Measurements and Selected Measurements.
  • . Enables you to locate a specific measurement, type the measurement name and click this button. The results are displayed below.
  • Create group using this regular expression. Enables you use regular expressions to define a rule that automatically selects measurements to be included in a group. The automatic selection rule applies to measurements that are currently displayed under Available Measurements, as well as any future measurements.

    To define a rule, type the regular expression and select the Create group using this regular expression check box. The applicable measurements are added under Selected Measurements.

Enables you to group the selected transaction measurements. The group name is added to the Grouping Name pane.
