Thresholds for WPM information.


All WPM versions


The default threshold timing values for a transaction are based on the step timings measured when a recording was saved:

  • Typical Value: the initial step timing.
  • Warning: Twice the initial step timing.
  • Critical: Four times the initial step timing.

The Warning and Critical thresholds are used to trigger alerts. The Typical Value is plotted as a benchmark on resource charts that you can use to compare with actual timings.


Editing thresholds:
You can change the default values if required.

  1. From the Home tab, navigate to Home.
  2. Click a transaction in the All Transactions group.
  3. Click Edit on the Management line.
  4. The Edit Transaction Monitor page is displayed, where you can edit the thresholds.
