uberAgent 3.5 is all about Application Reliability

The new uberAgent 3.5 brings some fascinating new capabilities for analyzing application UI performance. These go along with even further reduced resource footprint and many dashboard improvements.

Application UI Unresponsiveness

Everybody has seen windows with the text not responding added to their titles. The operating system marks windows in such a way to notify the user that the application has not updated the UI for the past five seconds. Whenever that happens, the user’s workflow is interrupted, time is lost.

That is exactly what application UI unresponsiveness is about. uberAgent tracks when application UIs are not responding to user input even for very short periods of time (a few hundred milliseconds) and makes the resulting data readily available per user, application, machine, or as a total:

uberAgent now also constantly determines which application is in the foreground. With that we can determine which of the many running applications is used to what extent. This adds nicely to uberAgent’s existing application inventory and application usage capabilities.

Advanced Filtering on any Dashboard

We have significantly improved dashboard filtering capabilities. You can now combine multiple filters, and you can filter by Active Directory domain, OU, and site, by Citrix Farm, delivery group and machine catalog, by hardware model and manufacturer, by OS build number, type, and version. This advanced filtering functionality is available on every dashboard.

And More

There is a lot more new and improved stuff than we could describe here. Go try it for yourself: setting up uberAgent is super-fast and easy.

As always upgrading is highly recommended. Please see the changelog for details. The new version can be downloaded here.

Hello, Thank you for this post.

I would like to know :
- What is the values range for a good/normal UI latency, or in other words which values should not be exeeded.
- What is the difference between Application UI latency per process Application UI latency per aplication, because in my tough it should be quite the same but I noticed that
the ranking is not the same.
Is there any website or document that explains how to read those graphs and interpret them and gives more detailed information ?

Thank you in advance,

Regards,
