Setting metrics as KPIs for analysis



You must tag your data using the App ID before you set metrics as Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Tagging metrics as KPIs provides quick access to these metrics from the landing page and Apps tab.


Carefully select KPIs to assist in application analysis. The time scales for the KPIs are synchronized, which enables you to see how metrics affect each other. For example, you can set application metrics such as request count and response time as KPIs.

To set metrics as application KPIs


Carefully select KPIs to assist in application analysis. The time scales for the KPIs are synchronized, which enables you to see how metrics affect each other. For example, you can set application metrics such as request count and response time as KPIs.

Note

The device data must be tagged with the application ID before you can set a metric as a KPI.

  1. Select a metric that you want to set as an application KPI by using one of the following methods:
    • Search for the metric from the search box. For more information, see Searching for data.
    • Click Sources and select a source; then select a metric from the Metrics tab.
  2. From the metrics list screen, click the action menu and select Set as App. KPI.
    After you set a metric as a KPI, the KPI label is displayed. For information about editing and removing KPIs, see Managing applications.

To view and analyze Application KPIs

The time scale on the charts is synchronized and provides a visual representation of the KPIs that enables you to identify relationships between metrics. For example, a sudden increase in requests might cause the response time to increase as well.

  1. Click Apps to view a summary view of all the applications configured in TrueSight Intelligence. The summary view lets you view the total events, abnormalities, and average values for the various metrics added as KPIs for each app.
  2. Click the application name to which you associated the metrics.
  3. From the app details screen, select the KPIs tab. You can view and analyze the charts (one chart for each KPI).

To edit the Application KPIs

  1. Click Apps and click the application name to view application details.
  2. Click edit to view and edit the application details.
  3. You can edit the name, description, and application URL. The Application URL is used for reference, and is useful if you are monitoring an application that has a URL.
  4. From the KPIs table, perform the following actions:
    1. Edit the title.
    2. Use the arrow buttons (or ) to change the order in which the KPIs are displayed.
    3. Click remove to remove a KPI from the display and remove the KPI tag from the metric.
  5. Click Save.
