User Experience Score

The user experience score provides a quantifiable measurement of a monitored user’s overall digital experience. It evaluates endpoint performance and health, application responsiveness, and network connectivity and factors in changes across these components to account for their impact on the user’s experience. The user experience score enables network administrators to continuously monitor performance and respond proactively to any emerging issues.

User Experience Score Components

The user experience score uses multiple components in a data model for computation. The components are listed below:

  1. Device health & performance: The user experience score assesses the operational health of a user’s device by monitoring multiple aspects like processor, memory, Wi-Fi strength, and other factors. Optimal performance in these areas—such as higher availability of resources and stronger Wi-Fi signals—can have a positive impact on the user’s experience.
  2. Application responsiveness: The experience score utilizes the application response metrics observed for the user by focusing on the POP that the user is connecting through. 
  3. Network connection performance: The experience score also utilizes latency measurement and network performance to account for the health of the connection from the user’s device to the relevant Netskope POP. This component accounts for the quality of the network connection, the underlay as well as the overlay performance as contributors to the user’s experience.

The score is computed if at least 2 of the above mentioned components have generated monitoring telemetry.

 Score Ranges

The user experience score range is 0 to 100. A score of 0 indicates poor performance that could impact user operations and satisfaction, while a score of 100 represents an excellent state with no impacting issues.

  • Good (Green): Scores ranging from 71 to 100 indicate that users are likely enjoying optimal digital interactions. 
  • Fair (Orange): Scores between 31 and 70 represent an acceptable user experience that might still require attention. 
  • Poor (Red): Scores from 0 to 30 signal a subpar user experience, where users are likely facing significant challenges such as frequent application timeouts, slow device performance, or poor network connectivity.

Score Frequency

The user experience score is displayed at a frequency that is set by the admin for monitoring telemetry collection. The score frequency represents the time interval of data collection from the various services and components that are utilized by the P-DEM service.

For example, if an admin sets the network path probe frequency for User A at 5 minutes, then the User Drill Down dashboard for User A will display the User Experience Score at a 5-minute interval.

Network Path Latency – Underlay

This visualization gives you the complete hop by hop view of a user connecting through Netskope to a monitored application. It indicates which particular hop or hops where there is latency and/or packet loss. It also provides network information such as the user’s public and private IP address, node level network information when available, as well as geographic information to help with troubleshooting.

  • Timeframe: Based on the selected time range above, this drop down will be populated by the number of paths seen for the selected user accessing the selected monitored application.
  • Total Packet Loss: The observed total packet loss percentage for the selected user and POP that the user was connected to during the time range selected.

Netskope Metrics

Processing Time

The Netskope Processing Time metric provides a measurement of the average time it takes for Netskope to process your traffic at any Point of Presence (POP) used by your organization. 

The data shows the average latency observed per minute, based on the traffic (including both requests and responses) processed at the last connected POP. The traffic for this measurement is selected through a process of random sampling each minute.

Application Metrics Section

  • Round Trip Time: The observed Round Trip Time (RTT) for the user connecting through the connected Netskope POP to the monitored application.
