What is difference between Method Time and Method Exec metrics?

I want to know what is the difference between these metrics as in snapshot:

I want to configure an "interface" representing a backend C++ server which is called by a method which usually does the SocketRead(). I want to plot the trend so that based on this a dashboard and alert can be created. So which is most appropriate?

Best Regards, Rajesh.

Hi Rajesh,

Time - The execution time of a method + the execution time of all its sub-methods.
Exec Time - Execution time of just that method, without the sub-methods time.

As an example on your PurePaths view, Time is the 'Exec Total [ms]' while Exec Time would be 'Exec [ms]' metric on that tree view (hidden by default).



As Suggested by @Radu S., The Metric Time works perfect BUT -- we need to create a separate BT in order to get Response time of the caller and further callee methods.

Here is way to do it. I hope this answer helps someone in future to configure Interfaces! Thank me later 😄
