How to configure an information point to get total time for method


How can i set up an information point to capture total time instead of self time.   Currently it only shows the self time for a line and not the total time.

We see information point monitors total time itself part of target class and method, however the total time includes time spend on sub calls for synchrnous calls only, as there could be some sub calls in your case that are async that is separate thread initiated whcih is not tracked as expected.


However, we suggest to try BT on same API and method as we collect End-to-end response time including time spend on methods in async thread part of BT as referred in feature doc as part of business transaction detection as in below doc, also refer waterfall view to get end to end time in snapshot for total time that includes async time spent as well in UI:

OR define separate Information point on same sub thread initiated asynchrnously to track other API response time.
