Website application monitoring "in-flight request"


We are using website monitoring feature but we noticed that request that has been started but not yet completed, a.k.a. a request in progress are not traced/visible. Is there any option to see those in-flight requests or if not could be this funcionallity added to instana.

    After evaluating the idea we decided to do not consider it by now, as our current architecture does not support it and we will not change it within 18 months.

    Hi Diana.

    currently we have ITCAM for Application Diagnostics which have option to see what is currently running on app servers. In ITCAM I can create group of JVMs and see what is running I can also see current stack trace of the request. We need this because when I get call from DB Admin I can see which requests are running and see stack trace of the request. So, I can help development team with long requests. In attached files is screen shot of ITCAM current requests. I know when I request data from ITCAM it will contact selected JVM. Is live view in Instana same as ITCAM or there is any delay?

    Best Regards, Blaz Polensek

    Could you give us more details on why do you need to see the in-progress XHR request?
