RTV can be configured to attempt to merge all session fragments into a single, unified session for replay purposes.
Before replay is run, RTV completes a search of the session indexes that correspond to the settings specified in the preceding dialog. When matches are found for the sessions through the indexes, RTV assembles the pieces of session into a single, integrated replay experience.
- Because RTV uses the Canister indexes for locating session fragments, fragment merging does not apply to active sessions.
- Sessions stay fragmented within the Canister. These fragment merge options must be respecified whenever the session is requested.
In the received data stream, pages can be displayed that belong to child frames of a parent page that was received earlier in the session.
For example, Ajax technologies and IIS PostBacks cause changes in the appearance and content of pages already on the screen. Pages can cause XML data streams to be emitted and received from the web servers, which are then captured by Experience Analytics. These pages must be integrated into the RTV replay stream.
