RTI collects response time data for web-based applications and allows users to drill down into transactions through the browser, network, web and application tiers, all the way down to the database query to identify the root cause of the slow application performance.
"We created a product with a tightly defined set of core capabilities that would be easy to use even for people who do not have a lot of experience doing performance engineering, including developers, testers, and operations," Cole explained.
RTI collects data about the events that contribute to an end-to-end transaction. Typically that includes a collector for the browser and a collector for each back-end Linux server. Collectors take just minutes to install – the entire process can be completed in as little as a half hour.
Once collectors are in place, RTI begins measuring transaction performance from "click" to "render" in the browser. Data is analyzed in the RTI console:
- Transaction Overview Report
- Transaction Deep Dive Report
- Transaction Summary Report
Using these reports, root-cause failure can be quickly identified and traced to individual workstations, network links, host and applications down to the method level. In addition to browser-based transactions, RTI supports end-to-end transaction coverage of web services, test automation frameworks including JMeter and soapUI, and message-based transactions.
Data collection can be modified on the fly, without impacting or restarting the application. Reports and analysis can be easily shared with others inside and outside the organization, speeding problem resolution.
RTI consists of two components:
- RTI Web, which measures web browsing transaction response time and decomposition.
- RTI Enterprise, which extends transaction tracing into back-end web and application servers.
