IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version 7.1.0.1

Baseline attributes

The Baseline attributes provide information for baseline extract data for the given application.

The baselining collects statistical information about an application requests completion times and uses this information to assign fair and bad thresholds on the application requests. The product divides the whole request response times into buckets and collects individual hits into each bucket. Use these attributes to get statistics from individual requests collected during baselining interval.

The attributes within this group are used to build the Selected Request - Baseline workspace.

Application ID

The unique identifier that is assigned automatically when the application is first configured and is preserved during the whole application life cycle. Format is positive integer.

Bad Hits (%)

The percentage of bucket hits in the metric bad value zone. Format is positive integer.

Bucket Number

The bucket number of the baselining data. Format is positive integer.

EJB (%)

The average percent of time that bucket requests were executed inside EJB container. Format is positive integer.

Fair Hits (%)

The percentage of bucket hits in the metric fair value zone. Format is positive integer.

Good Hits (%)

The percentage of bucket hits in the metric good value zone. Format is positive integer.

Hits (%)

The percentage of hits for the bucket during the baselining. Format is positive integer.

Interval (sec)

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

JCA (%)

The average percent of time that bucket requests spent for JCA access. Format is positive integer.

JDBC (%)

The average percent of time that bucket requests spent for JDBC access. Format is positive integer.

JMS (%)

The average percent of time that bucket requests spent for JMS access. Format is positive integer.

JNDI (%)

The average percent of time that bucket requests spent for JNDI access. Format is positive integer.

Lower Boundary (msec)

The lower boundary of bucket response times in milliseconds. Format is positive integer.

Metric ID

The metric identifier of the baselining data. Format is positive integer.

Metric Type

The metric type of the baselining data. Valid formats are Request, Error, and Resource.

Node Name

The name of the system on which the server is running. Alphanumeric string.

Origin Node

The name of the server subnode. Alphanumeric string. Maximum 128 characters.

Portal (%)

The average percent of time that bucket requests were executed inside portal container. Format is positive integer.

Response Time Mean (msec)

The mean time of bucket response times. Format is positive integer.

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.

Selection Hits (%)

The percentage of bucket hits in the metric selection value zone. Format is positive integer.

Server Name

The name of the application server. Alphanumeric string.

Servlet JSP (%)

The average percent of time that bucket requests were executed inside the servlet container. Format is positive integer.

Total Hits

The total hits number for the bucket during the baselining. Format is positive integer.

Upper Boundary (msec)

The upper boundary of bucket response times. Format is positive integer.
