Standard pricing is based on a few factors: the total number of monitored tasks in all the monitored scenarios within an account and the frequency of monitoring (ex. 1-minute, 3,5,10, 15-minute).
In UserView the terms ‘task’ and ‘step’ DO NOT mean the same thing. Specifically, a task is defined as an action that opens a new URL, or page title. A step is a single action performed on a page such as checking for the existence of a specific element. A task may contain multiple steps before a new task is initiated. For example, you may begin a task by browsing to a new URL. You may then perform three steps by checking for the existence of a user login field, checking the footer for the phone number, and making sure the heading contains the word “shopping cart”. Then, when a link is clicked and a new URL is loaded, you have created a second task. There are some advanced features that will also trigger a new task such as an RIA Picture Assertion, finding and mousing over an image, starting a script timer and starting a network element timer.
Additional costs may be incurred when non-standard monitoring agents are used or when the Rich Internet Application (RIA) option of UserView Monitoring is required or chosen for monitoring.
GoTo This is an operation of navigation to a new URL using the address bar “tab1.GoTo(“http://www.google.com“);” Navigating This is an operation of navigation to a new URL by interaction with the content of a page, during script recording “tab1.Navigating(“http://www.google.com“);” New popup

“Tabs.PopUps.Pop[“http://www.google.com“];” RIA Picture Assert action Search operation of a given image at a target page “DMAssert.CHECK(“Search Image 0″, () => tab1.FindPicture(PictureList), tab1);” Mouse Move To Picture Mouse move performs the search of a predefined picture and moves the cursor over the center of found image “tab1.MouseMoveTo(PictureList);” Start Script Time Watcher Measurement of an execution time of a specified part of a script. For example, if we need to measure only the 4th step of our 10 steps script, which is load time of a shopping cart at our online store. “StartScriptTimeWatcher (“ScriptTimeWatcher_1”, WatcherType.AlertAndReport, “10sec”.ToDuration ());” Start Network Time Watcher This option allows to measure load time of a network elements, grouped by type (set a mask, like *.png, *.js etc.) “StartNetworkTimeWatcher (“NetworkTimeWatcher_1”, WatcherType.AlertAndReport, “10sec”.ToDuration (), “*”, NetworkWatcherType.Each);”
