Use the settings on this page to configure an Application Health Status report section.

General Settings

Data Source

Choose to get data from an individual server or, if applicable, from the aggregation of more than one servers.

Display Settings

Select the number of application rows to display before scrolling. Select to display complete URL strings or path information. You can also set up AHS to not display the Summary view when it opens initially.

Time Range Settings

Choose a time range to be the default time range.

For each range you can customize an associated Trend time range.

Select Enable Custom Time Range to create a unique time range, trend time, resolution and label for the range. This appears in the Time Range list on the Application Health Status report when you enable it.

Metric

Select a metric from the list to be used to drive the health indicator. The primary metric value is the selected metric averaged across all predefined front-end data center type tiers for a specific application. The Application Health Index is the default metric setting. Other choices include: Availability, Performance, Operation Time, and Operations

Report Columns

From the Columns list, select the indicators to display by default on the report.

Real versus Synthetic Threshold

If the number of active users is less than or equal to the user defined threshold, the overall health of the application is based on the results of Enterprise Synthetic. If the number of active users is greater than the user defined threshold, the overall health of the application is based on the results of Data Center Real User Monitoring. You can adjust the number of users for this rule globally for all applications here.

Thresholds

When you select a metric from the list on the left, the display is updated with the metric data. Choose Custom or Benchmark:

Custom

Specify custom threshold levels for a metric. The associated color changes when the value of the metric rises above, or falls below, the threshold value.

You can set a maximum of two thresholds (three colors). Use the buttons Thresholds to increase or decrease the number of thresholds. Type the threshold values directly into the threshold boxes, or use the slider to adjust based on real data values. You can enter unit prefix symbols (such as k or G) or scientific notation.

Certain metrics are more meaningful when represented in reversed color order. Click the Order button threshold to reverse the color order of a particular threshold. You cannot change the threshold order, which is set in ascending order.

Metric colors serve as a comparison between current and typical metrics, signifying high and low deviations from the norm. To change a color, click it and choose a different color from the grid.

Benchmark

If you select Benchmark, threshold values are set the same as for Custom, but they are used differently: A benchmark cell color is determined by comparing the metric value by the benchmark value of the same metric, and then relating the comparison result to the threshold.

Filters

For the AHS report, use this tab to decide what applications display on the report. To define more precise criteria for report definition, apply a dimension filter:

  • To include a dimension (member) value, select the desired value and click the Selected button Selected. This action copies the selected value to the pane on the right side.

  • To remove a dimension value from the report, select it in the right-hand pane and click the Available button Available. The selected item is removed from the list of included filter criteria.

  • To easily find values, you can use patterns (wildcards) to narrow the scope of the values. Enter a filter pattern in the Pattern field and click Set. To clear the pattern selection, click Reset . By default, the Pattern field is empty, which means that all values are selected. To select all values, you can also type the wildcard character (*).

If you select the Hide option for the Filter Display, the filter definition is not displayed, but it affects the data on the report by filtering the result.

If you select Negate selected items after you add items to the Selected list, everything you select within this list is ignored and everything else is selected. This is helpful if the list is extremely long and you want only certain items deselected.
