Service overviewedit

Selecting a service brings you to the Service overview. The Service overview contains a wide variety of charts and tables that provide visibility into how a service performs across your infrastructure.


Response times for the service. You can filter the Latency chart to display the average, 95th, or 99th percentile latency times for the service.

Service latency

Throughput and transactionsedit

The Throughput chart visualizes the average number of transactions per minute for the selected service.

The Transactions table displays a list of transaction groups for the selected service and includes the latency, traffic, error rate, and the impact for each transaction. Transactions that share the same name are grouped, and only one entry is displayed for each group.

By default, transaction groups are sorted by Impact to show the most used and slowest endpoints in your service. If there is a particular endpoint you are interested in, click View transactions to view a list of similar transactions on the transactions overview page.

Traffic and transactions

Error rate and errorsedit

The Error rate chart displays the average error rates relating to the service, within a specific time range.

The Errors table provides a high-level view of each error message when it first and last occurred, along with the total number of occurrences. This makes it very easy to quickly see which errors affect your services and take actions to rectify them. To do so, click View errors.

Error rate and errors

Span types average duration and dependenciesedit

The Average duration by span type chart visualizes each span type’s average duration and helps you determine which spans could be slowing down transactions. The "app" label displayed under the chart indicates that something was happening within the application. This could signal that the agent does not have auto-instrumentation for whatever was happening during that time or that the time was spent in the application code and not in database or external requests.

The Dependencies table displays a list of downstream services or external connections relevant to the service at the selected time range. The table displays latency, traffic, error rate, and the impact of each dependency. By default, dependencies are sorted by Impact to show the most used and the slowest dependency. If there is a particular dependency you are interested in, click View service map to view the related service map.

Displaying dependencies for services instrumented with the Real User Monitoring (RUM) agent requires an agent version ≥ v5.6.3.

Span type duration and dependencies

All instancesedit

The All instances table displays a list of all the available service instances within the selected time range. Depending on how the service runs, the instance could be a host or a container. The table displays latency, traffic, errors, CPU usage, and memory usage for each instance. By default, instances are sorted by Throughput.
