Measures in AppMon are metrics, or data points, collected and recorded in the AppMon Performance Warehouse either periodically or based on transactions. Measures are used for long-term charting, trend analysis, and as the basis for configuring incidents.

Agent based measures (such as host agent and monitor measures) provide insight into your environment and infrastructure. These measures give accurate environment data points related to hardware, operating systems, servers, and databases.

Transaction based measures give insight into your applications and transactions using PurePath information.

PurePath based measures are calculated from PurePath-extracted data such as Response Time, the number of SQL executions, or the number of exceptions. PurePath based measures can also be calculated from any visit data, including visit durations, visit counts, or conversion rates

Measures can be used to define criteria in a business transaction by extracting pieces of specific information and so they can be broken up into categories of information

You can copy measures or a group of measures between System Profiles. To search for a measure, press Ctrl+F, and type first letters of the measure name. To clear measured values for a measure, or for a group of measures, right-click it, and select Erase Data from the context menu.
