IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version

Request Times and Rates attributes

The Request Times and Rates attribute group provides information about historical request throughput and average response time for a particular application server.

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

Application Name

The name of the application to which the request belongs. The valid formats are as follows:


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

Average Load

The average number of concurrent requests during the interval. Format is decimal (formatted to 3 decimal places).

Average Request Completion Rate

The average request completion rate (that is, the request throughput). If the sampling rate is less than 100%, this number is extrapolated to estimate 100% of completed requests. Format is positive integer.

Average Request Response Time

The average request response time, in milliseconds. Format is positive integer.

Error Rate (%)

The error rate of the request during the interval. Format is decimal (formatted to 3 decimal places).

Interval (sec)

The length (in seconds) of the sampling 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.

Process ID

Indicates the process ID of the JVM.

Request Count

The number of requests processed during the current interval. Format is positive integer.

Request Data Monitoring Level

Indicates request data monitoring level

for application.

Request Type

The type of request being run. Valid values are Servlet, EJB_Method, Custom, All_Workloads, Unknown, and Portlet.

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.

Sampling Rate (%)

The percentage of edge requests-such as servlets and JSPs-that were sampled during the interval. Format is positive integer.

Server Name

The name of the application server. Alphanumeric string.


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

Total (ms)

The total time used (in milliseconds) during the interval. Format is decimal (formatted to 3 decimal places).
