The APM CE (CEM) component has multiple reporting mechanisms. These mechanisms will return a variety of fields. This is a clarification of two specific fields.
What is the difference between CEM - BadTransactionCount and CEM - DefectCount?
All supported APM Releases.
DefectCount is the number of actual defects
BadTransactionCount is the number of transactions with at least 1 defect
The key here is a transaction can have more than one defect.
