Support for on-screen reports

On-screen reports are now implemented using HTML5. This means the reports are available on all browser versions.

Previously, viewing on-screen reports required support for the NPAPI plugin, which some browsers no longer support.

On-screen reports enable you to visualize performance statistics in the Real User Analyzer by using pre-configured and custom reports.

Report changes

As part of this change to HTML based on-screen reports, there are some changes in the reports capabilities.

Some reports types included two Y axes. For example, the Report for Latency has two Y axes, "Latency (ms)" on the left side and for "Requests" on the right side.

In releases v2.7.01 and earlier, the user can zoom and scroll both axes independently and each zoom/scroll only changes the parts of the graph that correspond to the zoom/scroll action.

After installing the feature pack v2.7.02, the user can zoom and scroll only using the axis on the right side of the report, and each zoom/scroll changes all the parts of the graph, not just the graph elements that correspond to the axis that the user performed the zoom/scroll action.

Revised the JavaScript for deploying Web beacons

The Web beacon JavaScript library code was revised to better handle non-standard ports.

The JavaScript is also in the webBeacon_toolkit.zip that can be downloaded from the Toolkits table in the PDFs topic.
