What is a "transaction"?
A transaction is a series of recorded steps that emulate a business function performed on the monitored application by end users. For example, banking clients emulate "login", "account balance view", "fund transfer" and "logout". These are 4 separate transactions that AppPulse Active emulates to measure end user performance and availability of the application business function.
