Usage Monitor

The Usage Monitor monitors the definitions (pages, menus, PeopleCode, and so on) accessed by users through the PeopleSoft Internet Architecture. The information collected by the Usage Monitor enables administrators to more accurately understand what definitions in the database are used in their environment, which can assist with impact analysis when applying updates or change packages, for example. Usage Monitor information can also be used in conjunction with the PeopleSoft Test Framework.

When setting up the Performance Monitor system, there are a few additional settings that must be enabled if Usage Monitor data collection is required.
