WebSphere Agent Events attributes

The WebSphere Agent Events attributes provide information about agent-level events that affect the ability of the Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Agent to collect data about WAS. These attributes provide exception and error messages, their IDs, and their severities.

The attributes within this group are used to build the WebSphere Agent workspace.

Event Date and Time

The date and time the event occurred. 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.
