For performance-monitoring service targets, you can create expressions using key performance indicators (KPIs ). Key performance indicators store the information from a data source and this information is used in the measurement of a service target when assessing compliance and non-compliance for defined goals. You select KPIs when defining the service target using an interface that lists the discovered KPIs of each Collection Node. These Collection Nodes are configured in the Application Administration Console.
The following table summarizes the two types of KPIs are available for performance-monitoring service targets.
KPI types used in performance-monitoring service targets
Relevant nodes for selection
Provides the state of the item being monitored.
Specific transaction, activity, or business service node.
Records a numeric value for the item being monitored.
EndToEnd or Backend node under a specific transaction or activity.
When building expressions for evaluation, you can select from the following options.
For a single performance-monitoring status or value, you can include only one KPI. This KPI is used when measuring whether the target has been met.
You can include multiple numeric KPIs. You can also select one arithmetic type to apply to multiple KPIs. All the KPIs must receive values before the expression is evaluated.
KPIs can be used with an arithmetic type and one or more Boolean operators to form a complex expression. You can create nested expressions of up to 10 levels.
