In Custom Charts, it is possible to graph the connection time of an HTTP monitor, by using the following metric:
HTTP monitor - TCP connect time (by location) (Average)
In my case, the HTTP monitor does two TCP connections:
I'm not sure which value the custom metric represents, but given the latencies involved, I have made the following reasoning:
As I couldn't find it in the documentation, does someone know if it's #2 or #3?
Solved! Go to Solution.
There are two metrics for the HTTP monitors for TCP connection. One is general per HTTP monitor and the second one is for request.
Based on your question, I believe you selected the first one (I assume it's average of the steps in a monitor) and you probably want the second one (TCP connection time per request).
Nice! Hadn't noticed it. But the values are the same.
I believe the one by request/step, is for HTTP monitors that have more than one request... That is not my case, as redirects are counted as only one request.
