BMC Real End User Experience Monitoring dashboards display statistics about your web traffic as visually rich presentations. Each dashboard contains dashlets that use gauges, charts, and other graphical elements that provide an at-a-glance view of statistics.

A dashlet is a configurable pane on a dashboard that represents a particular metric. It provides a summary of end-user or application performance information that gives context about the health of your web application.

Dashlets help you determine:

  • What to monitor
  • Whether your system has a problem
  • Whether a problem needs immediate attention

You can add dashboards to the Application Management Console and the Analyzer.

Note

Before building dashboards, define Watchpoints — the segments of web traffic that you want to monitor.

The following dashlets provide performance and availability information about the monitored web application: 

Dashlet nameDescription
Application AvailabilityThe App Performance and Availability dashlet of BMC Application Diagnostics displays the application availability and performance as the percentage of error-free transactions and the percentage of transactions that have errors or latency breaches. You select the application name, metric, server or servers, and time range.  You can see how often end users are experiencing transactions with errors or latency breaches, and then drill down to details from the graph.
Average Application Response

The Average Application Response dashlet of BMC Application Diagnostics displays the average response time for all transactions on a selected application on a line graph. You can see where users are experiencing long application response times and then drill down to details from the graph.

Application Server MetricThe Application Server Metric dashlet of BMC Application Diagnostics displays the performance of a specified metric on one or more application servers over time. You select the application name, metric, server or servers, and time range. You can view and trend server metrics and correlate server issues with application transaction issues.
