IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version 7.1.0.1

Enterprise Java Beans attributes

The Enterprise Java Beans attributes provide performance information about each EJB deployed to the application server.

These attributes provide information about bean activity and bean object pool activity. Use the Enterprise Java Beans attributes in situations to monitor performance and problems for an individual bean. The attributes within this group are used to build the Enterprise Java Beans workspace.

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

Activate Count

The number of times a bean instance was activated during the interval. Format is positive integer.

Activation Rate (per sec)

The bean instance activations (per second) during the interval. Format is decimal (formatted to 3 decimal places).

Active Method Count

The average number of invocations being processed concurrently for all the methods during the interval. Format is decimal (formatted to 3 decimal places). This value is an average of several values collected over an interval. The interval can be either between this time and the previous time you activated this workspace, or fixed (normally 60 seconds), depending on the configuration of the monitoring agent.

This is a load value providing data on the average level as a function of time. It is the average number of bean objects that exist in the run time, whether active or pooled. This is a measure of how many resources the home interface is consuming. Format is decimal (formatted to 3 decimal places). This value is an average of several values collected over an interval. The interval can be either between this time and the previous time you activated this workspace, or fixed (normally 60 seconds), depending on the configuration of the monitoring agent.

It is the average number of bean instances of the home that are in the ready state. This is a measure of how busy the server is. Format is decimal (formatted to 3 decimal places). This value is an average of several values collected over an interval. The interval can be either between this time and the previous time you activated this workspace, or fixed (normally 60 seconds), depending on the configuration of the monitoring agent.

Discard Rate (per sec)

The bean object pool discards (per second) during the interval. Format is decimal (formatted to 3 decimal places).

Drain Count

The number of times the bean object pool was found idle and an attempt was made to remove idle objects during the interval. Format is positive integer.

Drain Rate (per sec)

The drain rate (per second) for the bean object pool during the interval. Format is decimal (formatted to 3 decimal places).

Entity Bean Load Count

The number of times bean data was loaded during the interval. Format is positive integer.

Entity Bean Load Rate (per sec)

The bean data loads (per second) during the interval. Format is decimal (formatted to 3 decimal places).

Entity Bean Store Count

The number of times bean data was written to the database during the interval. Format is positive integer.

Entity Bean Store Rate (per sec)

The rate at which data was written (per second) to the database for the interval since the previous sample. Format is decimal (formatted to 3 decimal places).

Find Count

The number of times a retrieval call found an object available in the bean object pool during the interval. Format is positive integer.

Find Rate (per sec)

The bean object pool retrieve availability (per second) for the interval since the previous sample. Format is decimal (formatted to 3 decimal places).

Get Count

The number of calls that retrieved an object from the bean object pool during the interval. Format is positive integer.

Get Rate (per sec)

The number of times bean objects were retrieved (per second) during the interval. Format is decimal (formatted to 3 decimal places).

Instantiate Count

The number of times bean objects were created during the interval. Format is positive integer.

Instantiation Rate (per sec)

The bean objects created (per second) for the interval since the previous sample. Format is decimal (formatted to 3 decimal places).

Instrumentation Level

The instrumentation level of this enterprise bean. 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 interval. Format is positive integer.

Method Average Response Time (ms)

The average response time (in milliseconds) for all methods of the remote interface for this bean during the interval. Format is decimal (formatted to 3 decimal places).

Method Invocation Rate (per sec)

The invocations (per second) for all methods during the sampling interval. This is a load value that provides data on the average level as a function of time. This is a measure of how busy the server is. Format is decimal (formatted to 3 decimal places).

Method Invocations

The total number of remote interface method invocations during the interval. 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. Maximum 128 characters.

Passivate Count

The average number of bean objects passivated during the sampling interval. Minimum instrumentation level required to collect these data: Extended. Format is decimal (formatted to 3 decimal places). This value is an average of several values collected over an interval. The interval can be either between this time and the previous time you activated this workspace, or fixed (normally 60 seconds), depending on the configuration of the monitoring agent.

Passivation Rate (per sec)

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 Name

The name of the application server. Alphanumeric string.

Set Instrumentation Level

Type

Indicates the WebSphere resource category, which is used by the agent to modify the Instrumentation Level for transaction data collection.
