Hello Henk,

I don't have release 7.0 but I am guessing following two things:


  • May be this feature is already taken back in the Test Center Edition (if you have the same edition)
  • Enable the DEBUG client mode with the combination of Ctrl + Shift + F9 and check

Regards,

Hi Henk. The documentation too shows that the "Enable
continuous transaction storage" is not there anymore in AppMon 7.0 but unfortunately without additional information about it.

For your purposes, you can check if sessions are continuously recorded this way:

  1. Right-click on the relevant system profile
  2. Select the option "Sessions storage"
  3. Check the different sub options

If you see the "Start Recording/Stop Recording" options, continuous storage is disabled and vice versa.

I opened a case about the missing flag (and the apparent default of per system profile quotas):

Hi,

it seems our documentation needs to be updated with additional information. What happened to Continuous session recording is the following:

- Continuous session recording is always enabled and cannot be disabled anymore

- However, we now allow to do a manual recording in addition to the continuous recording which was not possible prior to 7.0

So the use case should work as expected. Just start a manual recording during your load test and you will get a session as in 6.5. In addition the data is also available in the live session.

Markus

Hi @Markus P.

(or @Markus P. - not sure how two are listed with the same id)

That is great news! I was actually hoping this was the intent.

But I have a follow up question about the recording feature:

I have an EasyTravel travel license and it has not stop/start option on the system profile when I right click. Also, I know of a customer where the start/stop are present but disabled.

I assume this has to do with the license type, but not sure why there are different behaviors.

Do you know why this occurs?

Thanks,

dave

hi Dave,

this really is based on the license:

  • pre-prod: manual recording is possible
  • prod: manual recording is not possible

if you have any follow-up questions or suggestions about the licenses, please follow-up with the PM team.

best, Christian

Hi Christian,

Thanks, this totally clears things up for me!
