The first step in the coverage analysis process is to retrieve the usage data from the source system. In this step, Testimony will connect to the source system and retrieve workload statistics data (from the ST03N repository) for a period that you choose.
Executing the Usage Retrieval
From the Coverage Analysis screen, go to the Usage Retrieval tab, select your source system and click on the Execute button.
In the selection screen that is displayed you now need to choose the period for which you want to retrieve usage data from the source system. The available dates are shown in three separate tabs, based upon the data available, and the summarisation of data, in the ST03N repository in the source system.
You can choose multiple periods by highlighting more than one row and then retrieve the usage data for the chosen dates by clicking on the execute button. In the example below, we are retrieving data for the two weeks starting 13th April.
Once the data has been retrieved, the following output is displayed.
Going back to the Coverage Analysis screen (Usage Retrieval tab) you can see the details of the last usage retrieval run.
Double-clicking on this row will show the details of the data that has been retrieved, either grouped by application component or at the object level:
