When you create or modify a dashboard, select and configure the Global Application Delivery dashlet. 

Use the Global Application Delivery dashlet to show data from a Real User Analyzer to help identify problems in traffic volume and performance that end users are experiencing in various geographic locations. For example where the highest traffic comes from or which area has the biggest performance issues. The following topics describe how to configure and use this dashlet:

Understanding the dashlet data

The Global Application Delivery dashlet enables you to compare the performance and end-user experience of your web application by geographic location.

The Global Application Delivery dashlet is based on geographic performance-compliance levels (Geo PCLs) that you configure and enable in the Real User Analyzer. Geo PCLs characterize the end-user experience of server or application performance in a given region as SatisfiedTolerating, or Frustrated. A Geo PCL measures how well a server or an application instance is functioning, by using the E2E Latency or the Page-Render Time metrics. For definitions of these metrics, see End-user experience metrics.

The dashlet shows the all applications that match the criteria set in the selected Geo PCL.

Historic / Live data

To highlight historic data for the application or trends over time, you can display historic data or a live status ticker.

  • Historic data— Select the data you want to see.
    • Last 30 days— Data is shown in one-hour increments.
    • Last 72 hours— Data is shown in 5-minute increments.

    You can click anywhere on the time slider to show data for that point in time.
  • Live — Select this to show the current status of the application according to the definition of the Geo PCL.

Dashlet requirements

The Global Application Delivery dashlet requires a Geo PCL. 

Geo PCL definition is a distinct entity that you configure to monitor end-user experience of your web application for a specific Watchpoint in the geographic zones that interest you. You can configure a Geo PCL definition for each web application that you want to monitor. The Geo PCL definition determines which areas are shown by the dashlet.
