This category provides reports from the perspective of individual URLs (Universal Resource Locators) or hits. Hits can as simple as a gif that is embedded in a page to a JavaTM applet that is downloaded to provide some service. Anytime a URL is requested from a site it is monitored until the download is complete. All requests for the given URL are analyzed to provide a unified view of the performance for that individual URL. The metrics in this category allow content developers to identify problem URLs to redesign, remove, or off-load onto a cache server.
This category provides information on the common paths taken by end users navigating through the pages of an application. A path consists of a series of pages that were clicked on during a user session. The first page of a path is the first page a user clicked on. The last page in a path is the last page the user viewed before exiting the site. The system only includes paths that are traversed by more than one user. Also, if a user goes to the same page more than two times consecutively, as can happen when the user hits a browser Refresh button, that page shows up only once in the path.
This category provides metrics from the perspective of a web site. A web site consists of all of the web pages and page hits that are requested from the site. While a web site may physically be made of many web servers, content for the web site is identified by the hostname part of the URL used to request the content. Often there are several alternate names, or aliases, for the same site. In this case, resources requested through the alternate names are all considered part of the same web site. The reports in this category give content developers a starting point for determining which sites may be having performance problems or which sites uses are having trouble navigating.
This category provides insight into the performance of web pages that have some or all of their content hosted on a Content Delivery Network. The metrics in this category are custom and are defined on the Instrumentation page (click Configure > Monitoring > Instrumentation on the web console).
The list of metrics displayed in the Instrumented Page may vary, depending on the instrumentation metrics defined for your system. By default, Foglight Experience Monitor displays two instrumentation metrics, Load Time and Unload Time. These default metrics cannot be deleted. Administrators can define additional instrumentation metrics, as necessary. For a description of how Load Time is calculated, see .
For more information about managing instrumentation metrics, see “Instrumenting web pages” in the Foglight Experience Monitor Installation and Administration Guide.
