Enable workflow run time metrics

Provide an estimated run time that can be compared to actual workflow run times.

About this task

For baseline workflows, you must also manually enable the collection of run time metrics. The system automatically enables the collection of run time metrics for new workflows.

To collect run time metrics for a workflow:

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Workflow > Workflow Editor.
  2. Open and check out the workflow.
  3. In the title bar, click the menu icon and select Properties.
  4. In the Workflow Properties dialog box, click the Estimated Runtime tab.
  5. To enable the collection of run time metrics, check that the Requires ERT option is selected.
  6. Open a configuration from the Estimated Run Time column.
  7. In Estimated Run Time, enter an initial estimate for the workflow's run time.
    The system compares this initial estimate to actual run time results to create outlier reports. The system can automatically update this field in certain circumstances. For more information, see Workflow estimated run time updates. Workflow designers can also manually update this field.
  8. In the Outlier Percentage Threshold for ERT field, enter the percentage deviation from the estimated run time that identifies an outlier workflow run time. For more information, see Workflow estimated run time updates.
    The system uses a default value of 20.
  9. Click Update.
