Interpret the Response Time SLA Report:

Response Time SLA Report  provides comprehensive insight into the response time trends of the monitor for the configured time period of time. The following details can be inferred from the Response Time SLA Report:

  • SLA Name: The Specified name that uniquely identifies the SLA.
  • SLA Period: It determines the selected time period, where the terms of SLA have to be met regarding the service delivery. It is either selected as monthly, quarterly or yearly SLA.
  • Operating Period: The time period during when the SLA is measured and monitored.
  • Business Hours: Describes the time period declared as the most critical to your business and configured while setting up your SLA. The availability SLA will then be applicable for the time frame defined within the Business Hour. This time period will be shown None, if no specific business time is configured.
    For example, assume you have defined a business hour named 'Friday' as between 08:00 to 20:00 hours. This time frame is applicable every Friday. Now if you specify this business hour for the SLA, the SLA will be considered for a time period of 08:00 to 20:00 hours on Fridays.
  • SLA Achieved (%): To meet the SLA, response time can be set as equal to, greater than, greater than equal to, less than or less than or equal to a numerical value. By default, it is 1000 ms. SLA achieved (%) highlights the range of SLA achieved by the monitor. The achieved status is highlighted in green with the corresponding percentile value and the other part is presented in red color.

Graphical Interpretation:

The Response Time SLA History graph depicts the percentage of SLA achieved by the monitor, for a specified unit of time during the selected operating period. The average SLA achieved by the monitor can be deducted from this graphical data. Legends are provided below the graph to help decode the various trends. By default, the threshold value for response time SLA is set at 1000ms or less. Whenever there is an overshoot, the SLA is deemed to be violated and shown in red. Any SLA achieved status is highlighted in green. Infact, each goals can be custom colored during the setup process.
