How can I obtain a specific percentile value per User?

How can I obtain a specific percentile value per User?

The Overview report provides percentile graphs with percentile values of 50%, 90%, 95% and 99%. It is also possible to write out any percentile value for each user to a file during script execution.

The sample BDF script, located under attachments at the bottom of this article, uses the MeasureGetPercentile function to obtain the 95th percentile of the page time for the Microfocus Homepage. The percentile value is then written out to a CSV file so that it can used in external reports.

It should be noted since the introduction of Silk Performer 9.5, a more precise means to determining the Percentile data has been introduced, using the MeasureCalculateRawPercentiles() function.
