Applications Manager’s Java EE Web Transaction Monitor is about to get a makeover. Here is what you can expect from the upgraded version ofJava EE Web Transaction Monitor:

  • User experience is vastly improved over the Java EE web transaction monitor, with detailed graphs and data than the current version.
  • An enhanced java agent to reduce the instrumentation overhead during start up of an application server.
  • Apdex (Application Performance Index) graphs to show how well the application performs and more.

Here is a sneak peek into some of the major capabilities:

Apdex Score

Apdex is an open standard to measure the user satisfaction regarding a web application.

The data collected over a period of time is converted into a simple index, based on the application responsiveness. Application responsiveness is categorized into three zones – Satisfied, Tolerating and Frustrated. These three zones are partitioned using two boundary thresholds with base time in seconds (T and F).  “T” represents the target time or tolerating limit and “F” represents the maximum time for frustration limit.

The Apdex score is measured on a scale of 0 to 1.  An Apdex score of 1 indicates all the users are satisfied and 0 indicates none are satisfied.

Web Transaction Details

The Web Transaction page will give you details pertaining to the action that consumes longer time, frequently accessed actions, tier-wise breakdown of transaction response time in JVM and Database, and much more; from the application level down to the individual transaction level.

You can also view the “Most Time Consuming” transactions, the performance of web transactions over a period of time as well as a component-wise breakdown of a transaction.


Database Details

Get detailed performance metrics to identify the slow database calls, database usage and overall performance of the database through graphical and tab
ular representations.

By clicking on individual db operation, you get a list of web transactions that were performed by this particular db, thereby helping you to drill down to the root cause of the performance slowdown.

Transaction Tracing

The Transaction tracing feature will provide you information about the individual transactions that are experiencing significant problems.

Apart from displaying the slowest transactions in your web applications, it will also help you identify performance bottlenecks by drilling down the transactions to see which component is actually causing the slow down. That is not all, you can also view the time-consuming SQL Queries.

Contact for an early access to the new Transaction Monitoring capability and stay tuned for more updates on the same.

    Do you have similar probes for .NET, C/C++ apps?

      Hi Swithin
      Sorry for a late response to your query. Our team is almost done with the similar probe for .NET, although we don’t have plans for C/C++ apps as of now. For an early access to Web Transaction Monitoring for .NET applications, contact
