Observer Analyzer : Observer Analyzer : Network Trending : Understanding Application Transaction Analysis
Understanding Application Transaction Analysis
Application Transaction Analysis (ATA) is a feature of the Network Trending tool. Using Layers 5-7 of the OSI Model, ATA allows you to monitor response times, errors, request and response trends for any supported server application protocol.
The server application protocols listed in Table 22 can be configured for ATA. Most importantly, ATA can track and trend successes and failures of these client-server transactions, including response times at the application layer.
