Threshold Settings Dialog Box

To identify significant differences in performance, you can define unique thresholds to track differentials between measurements being compared. If a differential exceeds a defined threshold, that value appears in a predetermined color, identifying it as a minor difference, or major difference.

Important information
  • The term transaction applies to any activity measured by testing and production systems. This includes VuGen script transactions, HPE RUM transactions and actions, and URLs measured by other production systems.
  • The threshold definition and color settings are applied on a global level and hold true across all views in the report.

User interface elements are described below (unlabeled elements are shown in angle brackets):

Description

Measurement Type

The type of measurement.

Minor Difference

Enter a threshold value for indicating a minor difference between the production and test data.

Major Difference

Enter a threshold value for indicating a major difference between the production and test data.

<color settings>

Enables you to select in which color the measurement appears in the report. Click the colored square in the column to select a different color for the measurement.

Response Time

Measures the average response time transactions take to complete (in seconds).

Hits

Measures the total number of transaction hits over the entire test run.

Hits Distribution The percentage of transaction hits occurrence from the total amount of all transaction hits.
Users Counts the number of users that performed a specific transaction.
Users Distribution The percentage of transaction users from the total amount of users in all transactions.
Time In System (Hits X Response time) Total time a specific transaction was running in the system. Calculated by multiplying the average transaction response time by the number of hits.
Transactions per Second (TPS) The number of times a transaction was executed in a second. Calculated by dividing the number of hits by the duration of the data set.
HPE SiteScope Monitors (SiS) The metrics monitored by HPE SiteScope.
