Viewing Top Portal Content Requests

Access the Top Portal Content Requests page (PeopleTools, Performance Monitor, Analytics, Top Portal Content Requests).

This page enables you to identify, view, and rank the performance data that is associated with individual requests for content through the PeopleSoft portal. The charts enable you to identify content requests that are both popular and performing poorly.

All charts have a View in Grid hyperlink to show the chart information in a grid. This enables you to sort the information and to download to Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.

Before you can view portal content requests, you must first enter search criteria.

System ID

Identifies each monitored system. PeopleSoft automatically generates this value incrementally. System definitions are created automatically when the first agent of a monitored system registers with the monitoring system.

Database Name

The name of the PeopleSoft application database running on the monitored system. The monitoring system automatically inserts this value when it recognizes and creates a monitored system.

User ID

The user ID of the user who generated the request.

The User ID field prompts against the PSPMOPRDEFN table, which is populated by the Lookup program (PSPM_LOOKUP).

Performance Trace Name

Enter the performance trace name to search on PMUs within a particular performance trace. If a user has launched a performance trace in the Performance Console, the system labels every PMU that is generated in a business process with a performance trace name.

Performance Trace Name prompts against the PSPMPERFTRACE table, which is populated by the Lookup program (PSPM_LOOKUP).

Note: When searching using a performance trace name, the search ignores all agent IDs, so the current system ID is not relevant.

From/To Date/Time

Specify a range of time. The system searches on the monitor date and time, not the agent date and time. If you do not specify a time range, by default, the system displays information for the current day, starting at midnight (12:00 AM).

Search

The Search button performs a search based on the search criteria that is defined on the page. It should be pressed only once per search. If you want to view the most current information, use theRefresh button after running the initial search. If you clickSearch repeatedly, the system returns the same results from the same time range for each search.

Number to Retrieve

The number of top ranked statistics to be displayed on the charts.

Refresh

Updates the To Time value to equal the current time. Enables you to view the most current results of a search.

Top Portal Content Requests

This chart indicates the most popular content that is requested by users through the portal.

The chart shows the top counts of content reference instances for PMU 117 (GetContent) that were accessed within the search period specified. The instances are grouped by context 3, which assumes one of the following values:

  • Portal CREF ID of the content.

  • Pagelet (appears when the template references the pagelet by URL rather than by CRED ID).

  • Menu (the CREF ID of the menu pagelet).

  • DEFAULT_TEMPLATE (the CREF ID of the default template CREF).

  • Homepage Tab <tab name>.

  • Target content (appears when the content is unregistered target content).

  • Logout (appears when a portal issues a logout request to another portal).

Top Cumulative Durations

This chart shows the portal content references that in total consumed the most time on the Portal servlet and their request counts. The system selects the top duration sums for PMU 117 (GetContent) grouped by Context3 (Portal CREF ID) that were accessed within the search period specified.

Duration Averages

This chart shows the portal content references that on average consumed the most time on the Portal servlet and their request counts. The system selects the top duration averages for PMU 117 (GetContent) grouped by Context3 (Portal CREF ID) that were accessed within the search period specified.

Top Cumulative Response Sizes

This chart indicates the largest cumulative response sizes. A response size refers to the size, in bytes, of the HTML response that the system sends to the browser when fulfilling a user request.

The data is generated from metric 1 in PMU 117 (GetContent).

Top Average Response Sizes

This chart indicates the top average of all of the response sizes. A response size refers to the size, in bytes, of the HTML response that the system sends to the browser when fulfilling a user request.

The data is generated from metric 1 in PMU 117 (GetContent).
