Live Transaction table

The live transaction table displays transactions as they flow. This section includes:

BTM View toolbar

The icons in the toolbar of the live view are (in order):

  • Zoom In Model Diagram - increase the size of the transaction pathway image.
  • Zoom Out Model Diagram - decrease the size of the transaction pathway image.
  • Define Transaction Filter - you can select a pre-defined display filter, create a filter in its entirety, or modify a pre-defined display filter. The chosen, created, or modified filter persists as long as the view is open. Refer to Model Properties for details on how to pre-define a filter.
  • Transaction Filter On/Off - toggle the defined filter on or off.
  • Show Transactions matching filter – toggle whether to show all transactions or only those that match the filter.
  • Show Transactions with SLA excursions – toggle whether to show all transactions or only those that have SLA excursions.
  • Show Transactions with failures – toggle whether to show all transactions or only those that have failures.
  • Live Updates On/Off - toggle live updates on or off. For high volume environments, you should turn off live updates. You can restrict the ability to turn live updates on by user. See Defining user access and security settings for information about how to set rights for users and groups. For better performance of the Monitor Console, use history and event rules to preserve the transaction details. If you are in a development or debugging environment, you might want live updates on.

BTM View table header

The values in the live transaction table are:

  • Identifier – either your transaction ID; or if you use aliases, an MQS_Number value automatically assigned to the transaction.
  • Filter – a red exclamation mark if the transaction matches the filter.
  • SLA Excursions – a red exclamation mark if the transaction has SLA excursions.
  • Failures – a red exclamation mark if the transaction has failures.
  • Earliest Touchpoint – the earliest time of anytouchpoints defined for this transaction pathway.Timestamp is inlocal time of the client.
  • Latest Touchpoint – the latest time of anytouchpoints defined for this transaction pathway.Timestamp is inlocal time of the client.
  • Timespan – the difference between the latest and earliest touchpoints. As transactions are flowing the earliest and latest times can change and therefore this doesn't necessarily reflect the duration of the transaction. Some transactions can have a negativetimespan if the times are from different hosts and not time synchronized. To prevent these discrepancies, use a time server to synchronize your systems and configure time skew adjustment for all involved agents.
  • Details – click on the button to analyze the transaction data received so far and annotate the diagram with progress. The detailscontains all SLA excursions, payloadvalues and durations of activities and paths.
