Before you start
This tutorial describes how the Eclipse Test & Performance Tools Platform (TPTP) project is extending its toolset to use The Open Group Application Response Measurement (ARM) instrumentation methodology for response-time tracking. Starting with TPTP V4.2, performance analysts will be able to use Eclipse TPTP -- or products based on TPTP technology -- to identify and monitor individual transactions as they pass through the various components of composite applications.
The implementation of ARM described in this paper was released as a Technology Preview with TPTP V4.2 in June 2006. In the future, it will be fully integrated into TPTP.
