Detail the contextual information specific to the issue; i.e. Product, Version, Agent, System, etc.
AppMon: 5.x , 6.x
Describe the problem, from the user perspective
What's the difference between Live session, continuous session (stored session) and offline session?
Clearly list the Steps to resolve the issue
Live Session: it's a reserved area in the AppMon Server's Memory. The more memory you assign to the AppMon Server the more PurePath can be held in the Live Session.
There are more features need to be mentioned.
For the 5.x version:
In server.config.xml under <settings>
optimizeforthroughput="false" in dT client's Storage page "Optimize for user triggered transaction analysis"
optimizeforthroughput="true" in dT client's Storage page "Optimize for dynaTrace Server throughput"
For the 6.0 version:
By default in 6.0 we use optimizeforthroughput="true" which means that as soon as a PurePath is completed it will be stored to disk (session store) and removed from memory.
