Diference between Number of Requests and Web Request Count

senen_alonso1

We want to monitor the volume of requests of our applications and we have doubts about which measures to use. Our options are:

- Number of requests by agent

- Web Request count by application

We are not clear about the differences between
Number of Request and Web Request Count.

Can anyone help us?

Hello Senen,

Number of Requests: Represents the number of calls to the Web Request per PurePath.

Web Request Count: The number of times the web request was called.

The Number of Requests measure indeed represents the number of calls to the Web Request per Purepath but you can't split it by agent. It only draws the total number of web requests and you can't really limit it to your particular application (assuming you have applications defined).

Assuming you have Applications identified (either by Host, URI or Web App ID) or if the auto-detected applications serve your purpose, I would recommended using the Web Page Requests BT since it splits it by Application (which I believe is your second option). Using this, you should be able to monitor the number of Web Page requests per each application. One thing to consider though, this BT filters out Bot, Image, CSS, JavaScript and Synthetic requests so you will get a true representation of real volume.

Hope this helps,

Ari

Well put, Ari!
