View Data Collected by Aternity

SteelCentral Aternity™ monitors the performance of applications and devices from the end user perspective, so you can measure and improve the productivity of your workforce. Aternity collects three types of performance data: device, applications, and user details.

SteelCentral Aternity™ collects three categories of data: application, device and user

Aternity gathers and stores detailed performance data. To view older data, it displays a condensed summary (aggregated data), like an hourly or daily summary.

The Aternity Agent reports data to Aternity once every minute. If its status becomes disconnected and it cannot send data after trying for five minutes, it locally stores up to 50 minutes of retention data in offline mode, and then sends it when it renews its connection.
