Retrace combines several tools every development team needs, but we are always open to fresh new ideas. Please submit your feature request/idea for Retrace below.
Clients would like to save historical APM data for future analysis.
Today, only an export of some APM data is available, through the web UI.
A lot of data are about our servers are stored, like memory and CPU usage of app pools and we need to export them.
A generic export feature of all data is a must have:
list of app and their servers and app pools
cpu/memory of servers and app pools
data of any monitor (ex: disk space, agent availability...)
Just the ability to export the "By request" data would make life easier for me. I spent a couple of hours yesterday in Excel after copy/pasting the data. Had to do a lot of format fixes (the "s" in Avg Time for example makes that value a string instead of a number).
Of course, it would be even better if I could compare different time periods directly in Retrace...
This would be extremely useful for problem investigation and performance analysis over time.
Workaround: I was able to get the data into excel by grabbing the JSON response from the debug console and writing a little utility to parse the JSON and spit out a CSV.
I would second this. If we can't get APM to compute/present stats, then an ability to export to excel the time taken and the request would be a satisfactory alternative to do offline statistical analysis.
I really need 90% response time and max response times to do my job with APM correctly
