Viewing the transaction map

New Relic's transaction map shows an aggregation of the end-to-end call flows for your app's transactions. If your transaction uses a supported agent version, you will see a Map tab when viewing a particular transaction or key transaction. You can use the transaction map to help locate bottlenecks in your systems and understand how the transaction is being used.

To view the transaction map for your app's transactions or key transactions:

  1. Follow standard procedures to select a transaction from your app's Transactions page.

    OR:

    Follow standard procedures to select a key transaction.

  2. Select the Map tab.
Transaction map
APM > (selected app) > Monitoring > Transactions > (selected transaction) > Map: Use the transaction's Map to view an aggregation of the end-to-end call flows for your transaction, find bottlenecks, and identify ways the transaction is being used.

Each map includes a legend that shows:

  • Type of call (database, external service, etc.)
  • Type of user (mobile, browser)
  • Line width indicating number of calls
  • Color code of the total time spent in the transaction for this path
If you want to... Do this
Isolate a path through the trace Select any node.
View a node label horizontally Mouse over the label.
