While searching an answer to a problem in the forum, I stumbled upon a statement which says not to start a performance analysis by looking at the purepath.
Can someone explain why is that ?

Purepath is single instance of transaction. It is hard to have general idea about performance issues based on single transaction that can but not must be representative. I always start from instrastructure (hosts / proceses) -> Services (looking for transactions that are slower than XX seconds, failed transactions). That I'm using service flow for checking if other services are root cause of fail or response time degradation. Than I'm going to the place where the root cause is located and checking Response Time Hotspots / Method hotspots / Details of failures and purepaths. In most cases this is path I'm following during loadtests for example. Systems are handling thousands of transactions so you have yo use advantages of dynatrace to have full scope view.
