Oracle® Real User Experience Insight

Release Notes

Release 5.1 for Linux x86-64


July 2009

Oracle Real User Experience Insight (RUEI) provides you with powerful analysis of your network and business infrastructure. You can monitor the real-user experience, define Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and Service Level Agreements (SLAs), and trigger alert notifications for incidents that violate them.

RUEI is a powerful Web-based utility to report on real-user traffic requested by, and generated from, your network. It measures the response times of pages and transactions at the most critical points in your network infrastructure. Powerful session diagnostics allow Application Managers and IT technical staff to perform root-cause analysis.

This document provides information about the changes introduced to Oracle Real User Experience Insight (RUEI) in release 5.1. Known issues and limitations are also described. It is recommended that you review its contents before installing the product or upgrading to this version of the product.

This document contains the following sections:

1 New Features Included In The Release

Oracle Real User Experience Insight Release 5.1 contains a significant number of new features and enhancements. They include the following:

2 Installation/Upgrade Procedure

The installation procedure, together with the procedure to upgrade an existing RUEI 4.5.x or 5.0.x installation to version 5.1, is fully described in the Oracle Real User Experience Insight Installation Guide.


The upgrade of existing accelerator packages (such as for Oracle E-Business Suite, Siebel, and PeopleSoft) to release 5.1 must be performed at the same time as the upgrade of the RUEI system to version 5.1.


If you are upgrading from 4.5.x or 5.0.x, it is not possible to modify the existing installation path or global installation settings.


Be aware that any manual changes (made by you or an Oracle consultant) to the settings used by the data collection process will no longer be effective after the upgrade procedure. Therefore, any such changes may result in inconsistencies and/or errors in the upgraded system. It is strongly recommended you do not make any manual changes to these settings.


After upgrading your system, there may be a temporary fall in the level of reported traffic. This is due to the purging of 4.5.x data from the content cache. This can also occur when making changes to content-related configuration items (such as page content checks, functional errors, and so on). Generally, any temporary decrease in reported data is related to the changed item. For example, changing the page tagging specified for an application may result in a temporary decrease in reported pageviews.

3 Known Issues And Limitations
