IIB Business Transaction Monitoring Enhancements

The proposed change request is regarding the new Business Transaction Monitoring (BTM) in IIB v10
The existing module requires manual setup, is not stable in its behavior (for example, shows irrelevant error messages in web console), and gives only text description of the business flow.

I suggest to add the following:
- Add automatic setup (using web console) to prepare MQ and DB for BTM feature, validate everything during the setup
- Add some statistics heading line into "View" tab (total number of transactions, how many in the last day / last hour, how many "ended" vs "failed").
- Give an ability to filter in the "View" tab also by date/time and last N rows (otherwise the viewer is not useful for large data volumes)
- Add colors or status icons to the results table in the "View" tab (green for "Ended", red for "Failed", black for "In Progress") - that will allow user to quickly identify failed transactions in the monitoring results
- Show a graphical representation of the received events, same way it is done in "define" tab, but with corresponding colors / icons above the flow picture; also give the corresponding colors to the events table - that one will allow a user to address the failure quickly, without deep investigation of the event data and logs

    RFE Review. Although we have not yet managed to prioritize the implementation of this feature we continue to monitor its popularity. Status maintained as Uncommitted Candidate.
