Analyze in Aternity Custom Dashboards

You can test your own troubleshooting theories by finding common threads (correlations) between an application's performance and two or more attributes. Alternatively, you can use the Analyze (Advanced) dashboards to completely customize your layout from a blank canvas, for the ultimate flexibility to display complex correlations between as many attributes as you need.

Analyze data more flexibly

Aternity offers a number of Analyze dashboards:

  • Use the Analyze Applications dashboard to check if any applications are slow when they run on devices with certain attributes. There are several dashboards within this one; select the Measurement Group to fit the data you need.

  • Use the Analyze Business Activities dashboard to find a correlation between the performance of a managed application's activities and any two monitored attributes, and then narrow down the data further. There are several dashboards within this one; select the View to fit the data you need. See the Analyze Business Activities dashboard.

  • Use the Analyze Skype for Business Calls dashboard to find correlations that might justify an improvement or worsening in call quality (MOS score) in Microsoft Skype for Business or Lync on monitored devices running Agent for End User Devices 9.1.x or later, both for regular Office and O365. See the Analyze Skype for Business Calls dashboard.

  • Use the Analyze Process Resources dashboard to find the managed applications on Windows and Mac that use the highest CPU and memory resources (PRC), which would slow down devices, and compare between applications or versions of an application to find the most efficient implementation (lowest PRC) in different operating systems or other attributes. See the Analyze Process Resources dashboard.

  • Use Analyze Applications (Advanced) to customize the dashboard to display any data you need to investigate your own theories on any application's performance (including discovered applications with no activities defined). Add your own columns, design your own fields with custom calculations, and apply them to any of the monitored attributes which you want to examine. See the Analyze Applications (Advanced) dashboard.

  • The Analyze Application Events (Advanced) dashboard shows only application events, which you can create to report the number of errors or the number of times someone used a feature in your application, like accessing its online help. You create application events in the Aternity Activity Designer and upload it to Aternity in a similar way to a regular custom activity. This advanced analyze dashboard allows you to customize its layout, so you can correlate the occurrence of an application event with other system or application measurements, but it does NOT display regular activities, only application events. See the Analyze Application Events (Advanced) dashboard.

  • Use Analyze Business Activities (Advanced) to customize the dashboard to display any data you need to investigate your own theories on any managed application's activity performance. Add your own columns, design your own fields with custom calculations, and apply them to any of the monitored attributes which you want to examine. See the Analyze Business Activities (Advanced) dashboard.

  • Use Analyze Process Resources (Advanced) to customize the dashboard to display any data you need to investigate your own theories on any managed application's resource usage (PRC), which would slow down devices. Add your own columns, design your own fields with custom calculations, and apply them to any of the attributes which you want to examine. See the Analyze Process Resources (Advanced) dashboard.

  • Use the Analyze Host Resources dashboard to find the devices with the highest CPU and memory usage (HRC, not the usage by one application). You can verify a hypothesis about high resource usage to find the common elements in all poorly-performing devices, by correlating high HRC with other system or software attributes. See the Analyze Host Resources dashboard.
