• Generate and Trace Transactions – For Transactions to be traced, there must be requests that match the trace configuration. For example, if you selected /ecommerce/authentication.do then /ecommerce/authentication.do transactions must be generated, either synthetically or by a real end-user, for RTI to begin tracing.
  • Gather Transaction Traces – Once Transactions have been traced, you can gather the traces from 1 or more RTI Collectors, and load them for Analysis.
Trace data can be then collected and loaded for analysis with the Get Data dialog.
  1. Open the Get Data Dialog by clicking Next from the Transaction Tracing wizard., or by selecting the Get Data icon located in the main toolbar menu.
    1. The Get Data Dialog will display the current Platforms and Collectors available: select one or more Collectors.

    Note

    If your Transactions are distributed and cross multiple JVMs or Platforms, you must select each Platform or Collector where you wish to gather Trace data.
  2. Choose the Time Parameters to collect data and ensure that this aligns with your Trace. For example, if you traced data for five minutes starting at Time A, then you may wish to gather data from Absolute Time A – 5 minutes to Absolute Time A + 10 minutes to make your Transactions are found and to avoid clock synchronization problems.
  3. Set the Ignore Option – Filter out methods that take less than the specified milliseconds. This eliminates "noise" data that may not be useful in solving your problem.
  4. Select Finish to begin transfering the data.
