Grid Control comes with a transaction-recording capability that lets you record web transactions that emulates end users. Grid Control tracks all response times of all URLs for all visitors that have accessed your application. Grid Control can not only emulate web traffic, but also emulates tnsping, IMAP, SQL, and several other protocols. By monitoring the number of hits combined with performance metrics, and analyzing the response times by URL, domain, region, visitor, and web server, you can clearly assess the impact of performance degradation problems on your user base. Further drilldowns provide you with Web server response time and load distribution information to help you efficiently balance server resources.
