Monthly Report showing Application Performance and Application Performance Benchmark

I have a monthly reporting showing the trendline for Application Performance (e.g. 98.5%) and another trendline showing Application Performance Benchmark (e.g. 98%).

What does Application Performance Benchmark mean, and how is it calculated?

Thanks!

Hello Victor,

DMI enables you to generate a single report table by using two different configuration screens: the Subject Data tab and the Benchmark Data tab. On each tab, you can choose the same or different data views.

You can use this feature to:


  • Compare metric values in a particular data view with the corresponding metric values in another data view. For example, you can compare metric values in the Software service, operation, and site data data view with baseline values in the Software service, operation, and site data baselines data view.
  • Compare metric values from different times or days.
  • Combine metrics or dimensions from two different data views to generate a single report.

Regards,

Babar

Thanks for your reply. I am trying to explain to customer what benchmark means.

Is it the average of the value over the past 1 month, 6 months or 12 months?

Say we do a past month report, by daily period.

The benchmark for say 4 july represents the behavior on 4 june, 4 may, 4 april...?

Thanks!

Hello Victor,

Below is the information about baseline calculation which is using for the benchmark data views.

  • A baseline is the data from the last several days (usually nine days) aggregated into one “average” or “typical” day. Baselines are necessary for considering the variations in traffic on different days of the week, random anomalies in traffic load, or to compare traffic with a known baseline from a specific point in time.
  • Baseline data is generated once a day after the arrival of data from the first monitoring interval after 00:10 am (in the background). Baseline data is not averaged over the day within each day and therefore may vary rapidly depending on the time of day – just as monitored data would. Each monitoring interval is assigned the value averaged over the nine-day period for this specific monitoring interval. Requesting baseline data for Yesterday will yield the same results as requesting baseline data for Today, because baseline data for yesterday will still be calculated over the last nine days counting from today.

For better understanding, pleaes go through with the following link:

No, the benchmark (a regular one at least) is calculated over the last 10 days. You can compare 10am today with an average at 10am over the previous 10 days. DC RUM don't calculate averages for day or higher resolutions.
