This video introduces the topic of transaction response time reporting based on the SMF 120 subtype 9 record.

Troubleshoot WAS Response Time Issues

Each request that comes into WebSphere is considered a transaction and can be reported down to the level of URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) name. These URI’s give you the names of specific resources or applications requested, and each individual request is logged, including its response time and certain response time components. These individual records can be aggregated to the time intervals and infrastructure resources (cell/cluster/node/sever/transaction class) that make sense for you.

With a flexible combination of predefined reports, user defined reports, and drill downs, IntelliMagic Vision enables WebSphere response time reporting to help you:

  • Ensure your service levels are being met
  • Isolate response time issues by system/cell/cluster/node/server/servant/transaction class/URI
  • Identify some of the components of response time delays
  • Understand your response time patterns by time of day, day of week, and more
  • Compare different time intervals, to assess the impact of planned or unplanned changes
