The system distinguishes user sessions in your web traffic, or sessionizes it. Typically, systems track a session using a single session tag and marks the end of a session by using a timeout. Your web application, however, might be more complex. For example, session tags might change during a session, or the session termination criteria might be more definitive than a timeout.
The Session Detection (or sessionization) feature enables you to configure the system to do the following:
By default, BMC Real End User Experience Monitoring Software Edition sessionizes web traffic by client IP addresses (both IPv4 and IPv6). Alternatively, you can configure different sessionization rules to apply to portions of your web traffic. To see which part of the traffic is sessionized by which rules, in a Real User Analyzer, point to Administration > Data flow settings and click Session detection. You will see graphical representation of the sessionization process.
