You can think of transactions as a representation of requests as they propagate from one service to the next in a distributed environment. This could be a direct result of a request initiated by a customer’s browser, but could also be initiated by a scheduled job or any other internal execution. An individual transaction consists of one or more requests.

For each transaction, the page displays:

  • Entry point
  • Services
  • Start time
  • Duration
  • Cost
  • Related issues
