Performance Chart

The Performance Chart Pane displays the selected watch item(s) response time data. The data can be displayed in numerous ways (See Performance Chart Options section below).


The Performance Chart will initially load data for a watch item, but will not automatically refresh itself. Click on the Refresh button in the Performance Chart pane to refresh the chart from historical data.

When a single watch item is charted, two chart constant lines are displayed:

  1. Max Response Time - the maximum amount of time that a watch item must respond or the watch item will fail with a timeout.
  2. Average - the overall average response time. This average is for all data collected and not representative of just the data displayed in the chart.
