    Use the time range filter to select only those transactions that occurred within the time range you specify. The time range can be specified as a time relative to the current wall time, or you can specify an absolute time range with specific upper and lower bounds.

    • To specify a relative time range:

      1. Click the RELATIVE button.
      2. Enter a value in the From field and a unit of time using the Time units drop down (Down).
      3. If you would like to round the time range down to the earliest whole unit of measure, select the checkbox. This feature allows you to expand the downward time range to align with the nearest second, minute, hour, day, week, month or year.
    • To specify an absolute time range:

      1. Click the ABSOLUTE button.
      2. Enter the start of the time range using the Start Date and Start Time fields, and the end of the time range in the Stop Date and Stop Time fields.


    The resulting time range is displayed at the top of the filter.

  3. Add additional transaction identification and performance filtering criteria (as desired).

    You can filter the transaction list further by entering additional transaction identification and performance filtering criteria beneath the time range filter. You can enter more than one filtering criteria by clicking the add button (Add circle outline). To remove criteria, click the remove button (Remove circle outline).

    To enter transaction identification and performance filtering criteria:

    1. Select a filtering field using the dropdown (Down). Depending on the filtering field you select, the label text next to the field will change to reflect the kind of filtering that will take place.
    2. Enter a value for your filtering field in the space provided. Enter units of time in seconds.


    The criteria you have selected is displayed alongside your time range filtering criteria next to the collapse button (Collapse).

  4. Click the refresh button (Refresh) to apply all filters and reload the transaction list.

Tip: To share your filtered transaction list with others, use the send button (Send) to copy the URL from your browser's address bar and then paste into an email or other communication method of your choice.
