NAM Probe configuration - sequenced transactions

You can manage the sequenced transactions (operation sequences) that are defined on an individual NAM Probe or manage each transaction that is monitored by a group of NAM Probes.

  1. In NAM Console ► Deployment ► Manage devices, select NAM Probe Configuration ► Open configuration.
  2. Open Configuration ► Sequenced transactions.

Viewing all defined sequenced transactions

To view all transactions, select Reporting Configuration ► Sequenced Transactions from the console top menu.

  • Click in the Sequenced Transactions list and then type the first letters of a sequenced transaction name to find a sequenced transaction whose name matches what you have typed.
  • Click the magnifying glass icon or press [CTRL+F] to open a search box to limit the table view to only those rows that contain a match (in any column) to the search string.

For each transaction, the following information is shown:

  • Sequenced Transaction Name
    The name of a transaction.
  • Application
    The application that includes the listed transaction.
  • Type
    The protocol used to define the listed transaction: ASYNC-HTTP, HTTP, OF, SAP GUI, SQL, or XML.
  • Packaged Applications
    Whether the listed transaction is a packaged application whose transactions are recognized by the report server automatically.

When you select a transaction by clicking it once, you can see the list of NAM Probes that monitor this transaction.

Viewing sequenced transactions defined on an individual NAM Probe

To view the defined transactions monitored by a single NAM Probe:

  1. Open NAM Console ► Deployment ► Manage devices.
  2. In the Devices list, click Open Configuration for the device you want to manage.
  3. Finally, select Configuration ► Sequence Transactions.

The main Sequenced Transactions table lists all of the currently defined transactions and their details:
