Break down of Latency into separate timings for Capture, Transmission(send/receive), and Target Apply

When performance problems arise (e.g. Latency goes above a desired threshold), the problem area needs to be quickly isolated such that tuning efforts can be directed for quick resolution.  Currently, CDC only provides overall End to End Latency , what I believe is source record I/U/D time to target commit time.  To identify the problem area it is necessary to review the various performance metrics to determine where the issue may exist.   Customers have very heterogeneous replication environments and as such they involve support staff from different organizations.  Instead of involving numerous persons to help isolate, incur delays as the analysis is passed from person to person, having a break down of the latency timings will enable quicker isolation and resolution.  This capability exists in other IIDR replication components.
