Request Analysis attributes

The Request Analysis attributes provide response times and functional decomposition information about requests (servlets, JSPs, and EJB methods) that ran on the application server.

The attributes within this group are used to build the Request Analysis workspace .

Character String Meaning
MM Month
DD Day
YY Year
HH Hour

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.
