Creating default Mobile test settings

Test settings that you can define for Mobile tests are:

To view the existing settings

  1. Click > Test defaults to display the Test defaults page.
  2. Select the Mobile tab to view the default locations for all Mobile tests for this account and configure Mobile alerts.

Selecting Mobile locations

The Mobile Locations section lists the default locations for Mobile tests.

The locations selected here appear in the Locations section of the Mobile Settings page when you configure Mobile tests, however, different locations can be selected at that time.

To select different default locations:

  1. Click Edit to display the Mobile Location window.

  2. Select the locations from the Mobile Locations list.

  3. Specify the number of measurements per hour to be used for this location in the measurements per hour field prior to moving it. 
    Click . The location you selected appears in the Selected Mobile Locations list. You can add locations until you run out of measurements to allocate. To remove a location, select it and click .

  4. Click Apply.

Configuring default Mobile test-level alerts

Use these settings  to enable or disable Mobile alerts by type without changing the individual test settings. You can also configure default threshold values, although these settings can be modified when configuring alerts.

This section lists each type of Mobile alert  and indicates whether this alert is enabled or disabled (shown as On or Off).

Select an alert type to view default threshold values if the alert type is enabled. Select the alert type again to hide these values.

After selecting an alert type, select Edit to display the <AlertType> window, from which you can enable/disable alerts and set default thresholds, as described below.

Response Time Alerts

Use the Response Time Alerts window to enable or disable Response Time Alerts and to define the default thresholds for these alerts.

  1. Select On to enable the alert or clear the check box to disable the alert.

  2. If this alert is enabled, select either a dynamic, static, or average threshold. Click here for more information on these thresholds.

  3. Enter the warning and severe levels in seconds (for static or average thresholds) or seconds or percentage (for dynamic thresholds).
    A warning threshold must have a lower value (in either percentage or number of seconds) than the values for a severe alert.

  4. Enter the minimum number or percentage of nodes that must detect the error to trigger an alert.

  5. Enter a bandwidth value so that the Portal excludes locations which have a bandwidth less than the value you specify here.

  6. Click Click Apply to New Tests Only to apply this setting to new tests only.

Transaction Failure Alerts

Use the Failure Alerts window to enable or disable Transaction Failure Alerts and to define the default thresholds for these alerts.

  2. If this alert is enabled, enter the minimum number or percentage of locations that are required to detect the error to trigger an alert.
