As I mention in the video, I get frustrated when I look at an Application Performance Monitoring Tool and can’t figure out, or find any information documenting how the vendor calculates their metrics.
Recently I was doing some work with a vendor (Securactive) that provides an Application Monitoring product, Performance Vision. I asked them about how they calculate their metrics and they gladly referred me some technical documentation that was on their website that did a great job explaining exactly that.
Then it dawned on me that there really isn’t a ‘standard’ vocabulary or terms for response time metrics. In this video I tackle a basic term ‘Connect Time’, how to calculate it manually and how helpful it is to see it in a reporting system.
One of the key points I hope you come away with is that any tool that helps you see the ‘pattern’ is worth looking into.
