Can I give a business transaction "field" an alias?


I have a number of business transactions representing different monitored web service calls.

I want to create a BT Hotspot dashboard and add all those BTs, but the fields within the BTs obviously have different names relating to the services that they measure.

I would like to map an average response time to a common field name so I can show that in the BT Hotspot dashboard as a single column, rather than have many (many) columns all showing the same information.

I can see that I can add a Pure Path Response Time measure, but I'd like to give this a display alias for the dashboard and the report.

So essentially, I need my dashboard to show:

Number of calls to the service, number of failed calls, percentage of failed calls, average call duration, number of calls over a defined threshold

And I need that for each service that we're monitoring.

There's probably another question about how to obtain the number of calls over the defined threshold...

Hi Mark

Right now you cant define display names. Its been a requirement I heard in the past but its not been implemented yet. In our Web Dashboards we provide options to define custom display names for measures on charts. I will forward this idea to the PM so that he is aware of your requirement for the BT Hotspot dashlet.
