We have installed dynaTrace version 6.1 and would like to monitor wcf SOAP requests. The goal is to break the requests down by action type: how many of each type (select, insert, update, delete) and the average processing time of each type.
I have modified the ASP.NET sensor configuration to capture the SOAPAction attribute in the Request Header and can see the value in the PurePath details.
In the soap action, we have something like the following:
It looks like I now need to create a measure and business transaction, but I am unclear on how to correctly configure these to get the desired information. There are a lot of different options for creating custom measures - which type of measure and business transaction need to be created to capture and be able to report this information?
1- Create web request measure as "URI Pattern Value", then put the URI-Pattern (/wcfReqeust/).*
2- Create business transaction for wcfRequest methods then select the measure created by step 1
3- Then select measure "Last URI Pattern Value" from Splittings , to splitting BT by WCF methods.
i hope these steps help you
Thanks for the information. I tried this and it is close, but not quite what we need. The action that we would like to monitor is within the SOAPAction attribute of the Request Header, not part of the main URL. Is there a way to parse the values in the SOAPAction and have it break down each of these requests?
for this you need to create a split measure of type "web request header value" and add it to your business transaction; This should split nicely and give you totals for each type (Fetch, update etc...). Make sure you select the correct header name that you are now capturing.
Keep the measure filter you already have in place as it will only include the relevant web requests
I hope this helps.
