OctoPerf currently supports the following APM solutions:

Note

The additionnal header added by OctoPerf needs to be interpreted on the APM's side, usually by activating the RUM (Real User Monitoring) functionnality.

App Dynamics header

When the APM integration is activated from the runtime screen, script validations will also include the header:

AppD header

In this case the header sent is AppD_Header: Buyer.Login_process.01_-_Home_page.Home As you can see it is composed of:

  • The virtual user name,
  • The name of each parent element in their order of appearance,
  • The name of the request or its path if name is empty.

Dynatrace header

When the APM integration is activated from the runtime screen, script validations will also include the header:

Dynatrace header

The value in this situation is: ID=0b43ac2d-665c-425c-a4fc-5178a445b616;NA=Home;VU=AWZ8z9wns5AXY2ywqR2i;SN=Buyer;TE=Check AWZ8z9wns5AXY2ywqR2i

  • ID is the unique Id of this request,
  • NA is the name of the request or its path if name is empty,
  • VU is the unique Id of the current virtual user,
  • SN is the name of the current virtual user,
  • TE is the current test name as defined in the runtime profile or as in this example the unique ID of this check VU.
