I am trying to create a measure with a threshold to be used in an incident for a specific URI that can be found in the purepath tree. However, I am struggling with this.
There is a Business Transaction splitting measure that seems perfect however it does not allow for thresholds to be defined so these types of measures I understand are not used for incidents.
More importantly I've tried to use the Time (Web Requests) and Web Request Response Time which seem best suited for threshold/incidents but have unsuccessful results. That is; Often when I create a chart against that measure to verify it, the chart does show data but when I drill down to web requests I see all kinds of URIs but often not the URI the measure is suppose to be selecting.
What's curious is that when I do try to create the chart there is no agent splitting available when I have created the measure to specifically use specific agents that exist within that system profile. When I open the measure to all agents I do get splittings but still the results in the chart give me all kinds of URI's but often not my URI.
Any guidance I would truly be grateful.

Thanks James! In regards to your second bullet, though the drill down is showing all as there is no filter going on with the measure, is the idea then that the threshold I defined within the measure is applicable to the URI I want so that when I create the incident that URI would be the only one I would get providing it hit the threshold - Is that more the concept that is going on with this?
Yes, any thresholds will only be applied to URL(s) that are included in the measure you define. In the case of incidents it will just be evaluating that one series and the incidents don't really look directly at the PurePaths in that sense. For important URLs consider business transactions as well which provide more detail like failure rate and response time automatically in addition to the ability to baseline them.
Thanks James! Really appreciate your input. It helped me understand a lot and got me to creating successful incident measures. We have used BT on a regular basis and they're great. My wish list for Business Transactions type measures which have a lot more to them - as the results of those can be drilled down too what your URI in the measure was - is to allow for a threshold to be part of it. But I'm sure if they could pull that off easily without serious overhead they would have a long time ago.
Thanks again James!
