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

Average Response (ms)

The average time (in milliseconds) executing this request, per occurrence. Format is decimal (formatted to 1 decimal place).

Delay (%)

The percentage of execution time this activity consumed on average when processing this request. Format is decimal (formatted to 1 decimal place).

Interval (sec)

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

Longest Response (ms)

The worst-case response time (in milliseconds) experienced by this request. Format is positive integer.

Node Name

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


The number of times this request was executing during the interval. Format is positive integer.

Origin Node

The name of the application server subnode. Alphanumeric string.

Process ID

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 for nested requests during the interval. Format is positive integer.

Server Name

The name of the WebSphere application server. Alphanumeric string.


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

Total Time (ms)

The total CPU time (in milliseconds) consumed by this request. Format is positive integer.
