Pinpointing Problems
You use the Transaction Breakdown utility to determine which component caused
the poor response time. Prolonged transactions may result from a misconfigured
network, a slow CPU, database locking, I/O (file and disk operations), or other
factors.
Without transaction breakdown, you might upgrade the CPU when the real problem
lay with database locking. The transaction breakdown enables you to pinpoint the
exact problem, to avoid unnecessary upgrades and costs.
