Viewing the Measures

To view the measures reported by the tests associated with the Emulated Client component, do the following:

  1. Login to the eG monitor interface.
  2. From the Hosts/Applications tile, select the Components option. Once the componentS page appears, select the Emulate Client option from the Type list therein, so as to view the current state of all components of type Emulated Client. Then, click the Submit button.

  3. The Emulated Client component that we had configured previously will then be listed (see Figure 3). Click on the component to view its layer model, tests, and measurements (see Figure 4).

  4. Figure 4 will list the tests associated with the Emulated Client component and the measures associated with the Client Emulation test. From Figure 4, it is evident that all the transactions that were recorded for the eGTest script will appear as descriptors of the Client Emulation test.
  5. Besides the transactions that were recorded for the eGTest script, Figure 4 also displays an additional descriptor eGTest-1 Total. This transaction tracks the time taken by every transaction of the script, calculates the sum of the duration of all the transactions, and provides this sum as the response time of the monitored application. Figure 4 reveals the response time returned by the eGTest-1 Total descriptor. This is the total time taken to access the Eurail website, request for High-speed train information, check for the trains available and receive a response from the web server.

    The table below briefly explains the Availability and Response time measures returned by the Client Emulation test.

    Measure Name Description

    Availability (%)

    This relates to the availability of the page, i.e., whether a page has downloaded successfully or not.  In Windows Applications, this relates to whether the step has executed properly or not.  It is expressed in terms of percentage (%) – 100% if the download is a success and 0% if not.  A variation of this is for the availability of all the steps in total - if even 1 step has failed, the total availability is 0 %.

    Response time (Secs)

    This relates to the time taken for the page to download or the step to execute.  If the total availability is 0 % then the response time is set as ‘unknown’, else it is expressed in secs.
