Tips and tricks: How to immediately detect pending items

by / Wednesday, 03 October 2012 / Published in Tips and Tricks

If you’re looking to monitor certain steps within one of your transactions for a completion (run) time threshold, you can simply add SET !TIMEOUT_STEP before any command within the script that you wish to limit to a maximum of  seconds. Adding this command will enable AlertFox to immediately report and alert on the pertinent error within your transaction monitor (sensor).


*** The default step timeout is six seconds per TAG or the IMAGESEARCH/IMAGECLICK command. If the six seconds, there is no need to add the SET !TIMEOUT_STEP

Happy monitoring!
