Performance Monitoring

Performance monitoring – Yarado Community

Using Yarado, it is easy to monitor the performance of a certain application or multiple applications.

The timestamp function returns the current timestamp up to milliseconds. This way you can create a task within Yarado that monitors the performance.

For example, your goal is to know on what time Sharepoint has the best performance. With the help of the function 'Timestamp’ and a subtask, it is easy to find out.

Step 1:

First step of the task is to create 4 variables:

  • %sharepoint_start%
  • %sharepoint_end%
  • %sharepoint_runtime%
  • %enter%

File the variable %enter% with a enter

It should look like this:


Step 2:

Get to the functions area and double click ‘Timestamp’ or drag ‘Timestamp’ into the task:

When pressing start, Yarado will now fill the variable %sharepoint_start% with the current timestamp

Start the task of opening Sharepoint or have a SubTask ready to start in the Main task.

Step 3:

Follow this step with another ‘Timestamp’ function, but this time we use the %sharepoint_end% variable.


Step 4:

Now for the next step use the function: ‘Timestamp difference’

And select for start: %sharepoint_start%, for end: %sharepoint_end% and select the output variable: %sharepoint_runtime%

And click Ok.

Yarado will now calculatie the amount of milliseconds in between both timestamps.

It should look like this:


Step 5:

To monitor the runtimes(when ran multiple times a day) append the variable %sharepoint_runtime% to a csv file.

Use the function ‘Append to File’ and choose the input value: %sharepoint_runtime% followed by the earlier made variable %enter%


This way you can use the csv to look for any patterns in Microsoft Excel or even Microsoft PowerBI.

Copy and paste this part for multiple applications, add more variables and schedule the task multiple times a day for a week.

You have now created a simple and fast way to monitor applications
