Analyzing Business Transactions

Last update January 29, 2015

CAI lets you view the business transactions that have been captured. These transactions are also referred to as paths.

CAI exposes information about the transactions and their frames. This information includes execution times, thread utilization, log messages, SQL statements, request and response data, and stack traces.

You view transactions from the Analyze Transactions window. Transactions display in graphical or list view. By default, transactions are displayed in list view.

Note: Frames for each transaction follow a specific execution order and are not arranged by a particular agent.

Graphical view is a visual representation of the transactions. This view displays up to a maximum of 100 transactions. You can do the following operations in this view:

  • Search for paths by full text or by a duration of time
  • View the transaction details by clicking the frame. The transaction details display a visual path of transactions and tabs that contain the details of the frame. For example, frame information, tags, request, response, thread name, log messages, XML, and exception when applicable.
  • View paths for transactions that have identical transaction paths
  • Filter paths using refinement options
  • Shelve and unshelve a transaction frame
  • Pin and unpin transactions
  • Share a link
  • Share Point of Interest
  • Export a path diagram to a PDF file
  • Show and hide an outline of a path
  • Disable capture

In list view, transactions are listed with the name, start time, wall time CPU time, and agent information. You can do the following operations in this view:

  • Search for transactions by full text or by a duration of time
  • View information of a path. For example, the path and agent name, start time, wall time, and CPU time
  • Import and export transaction capability
  • View the transaction details by clicking Open transaction details Open transaction details button in the Actions column. The transaction details display a visual path of transactions in the path graph and tabs that contain the details of the frame. For example, frame information, tags, request, response, thread name, log messages, XML, and exception when applicable.
  • Import and export transaction capability
  • View paths for transactions that have identical paths

  1. Select Application Insight, Analyze Transactions from the left navigation menu.
    The Analyze Transactions window displays. By default transactions display in list view.
  2. To open graphical view, click Graphical graphical view button.
    The transactions display in graphical view.
