IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version 7.1.0.1

Application Server attributes

The Application Server attributes provide the status and summary data for a specific WAS instance.

The attributes provide performance data for the WAS runtime (JVM memory), thread pools, HTTP sessions, and configuration parameters. They also provide some information from other attribute groups to give an overall view of the WebSphere application server. Use the Application Server attributes in situations to monitor the health and performance of a WebSphere application server.

The attributes within this group are used to build the WAS and the Pool Analysis Workspace workspaces.

For information about WebSphere PMI metrics, see WebSphere PMI Attribute Mapping.

ASID

The identifier (decimal) assigned to the address space running this servant region.

CPU Used (ms)

Indicates the number of milliseconds the JVM CPU used during the interval. Format is positive integer.

CPU Used (%)

Indicates the percentage of the JVM CPU used during the interval. For UNIX users, this attribute has a meaningful value only if the Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Agent

is running with superuser authority. Format is decimal (formatted to 1 decimal place).

Platform CPU Used (ms)

Indicates the number of milliseconds the host platform (OS) CPU used during the interval. This feature does not apply to the z/OS platform.

Garbage Collection Monitoring

The monitoring level for garbage-collection data. Valid values are Disabled and Enabled.

Instrumentation Level

The JVM instrumentation level. For WebSphere 6 or higher, the valid values are None, Basic, Extended, All, Custom. Blank if no instrumentation level is set.

Interval (sec)

The length (in seconds) of the sampling interval. Format is positive integer.

JVM Memory Free (Kbytes)

The JVM free memory size in Kbytes.

JVM Memory Total (Kbytes)

The JVM total memory size in Kbytes.

JVM Memory Used (Kbytes)

The JVM used memory size in Kbytes.

JVM Memory Free (bytes)

The JVM free memory size (in bytes). Format is positive integer.

JVM Memory Total (bytes)

The JVM total memory size (in bytes). Format is positive integer.

JVM Memory Used (bytes)

The JVM used memory size (in bytes). Format is positive integer.

Node Name

The name of the system on which the server is running. The value format is an alphanumeric string, with a maximum of 256 characters.

Origin Node

The name of the server subnode. Alphanumeric string.

Process ID

The process identifier of the Java virtual machine. Format is positive integer.

Request Data Monitoring Level

The monitoring level for request data stored by the data collector. Valid values are Disabled, Level1 edge request data, such as servlets and JSPs are displayed), and Level2 (nested request data such as JDBC and JMS requests are also displayed).

Request Data Sampling Rate

(%)

The percentage of Level1 requests (that is, edge requests) being sampled. Format is positive integer.

Resource Data Monitoring

The monitoring level for resource (that is, PMI) data stored by the data collector. Valid values are Disabled and Enabled.

Sample Date and Time

The date and time the Tivoli Enterprise Management Agent collected the data. The valid format is a 12 character timestamp. For the STR and SCAN functions, the format is MM/DD/YY HH:MM:SS; the following table shows the values contained in this character string:


Format of the 12 character timestamp

Character String Meaning
MM Month
DD Day
YY Year
HH Hour
MM Minute
SS Second

Example: 09/13/06 18:32:03 indicates the data was collected on September 13, 2006, at 18:32:03.

This attribute was designed for logging and reporting data-collection times rather than for creating situations. To specify a time and date for comparison and testing, use attributes from the Universal Time or Local Time groups.

Server Instance Name

The name of the WebSphere application server. This is a logical grouping of one or more server instances (called a "generic server" or "cluster") any one of which can run an application. Alphanumeric string. Maximumight characters.

Server Mode

Indicates the mode of the WAS.

Server Name

The name of the application server. Alphanumeric string.

Server Type

The type of the WebSphere application server. Valid values are Unknown, AppServer, AdminServer, NodeAgent, JMSServer, DeploymentManager, ManagedProcess, and UnManagedProcess.

Server Subnode Name

Indicates the sub node name of the application server.

Start Date and Time

The date and time when the WebSphere application server started. The valid format is a timestamp. This attribute was designed for logging and reporting data-collection times rather than for creating situations. To specify a time and date for comparison and testing, use attributes from the Universal Time or Local Time groups.

Status

The status of the WebSphere application server. Valid values are Connected and Disconnected.

Summary

Indicates that this row is a summary row of statistical totals for all rows.

System Paging Rate (Kbytes/sec)

The system paging rate in kilobytes per second during the interval. Format is positive integer.

Version

The version of WAS. Alphanumeric string. Maximum characters.
