IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version 7.1.0.1

Requests Monitoring Configuration attributes

The Requests Monitoring Configuration attributes provide information for all requests monitored in application. Use these attributes to monitor application edge requests. The agent supports three types of edge requests, Servlet/JSP, EJB, and Portal.

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

Application Name Name of the application to which the request belongs. Alphanumeric string.
Application ID The unique identifier that is assigned automatically when the application is first configured and is preserved during the whole application life cycle. Format is positive integer.
Application Tier Threshold (msec) The response time threshold in the application tier in milliseconds. Format is positive integer.
Auto Threshold Bad Projection (%) Bad response time projection used for auto threshold. Format is positive integer.
Auto Threshold Fair Ratio Percentage to derive the fair response time threshold from the baseline selection. Format is positive integer.
Auto Threshold Fair Projection (%) Fair response time projection used for auto threshold. Format is positive integer.
Auto Threshold Mode Request auto threshold mode. Valid values are Default, Custom, and Disabled.
Auto Threshold Deviation (%) Maximum allowed deviation of requests baseline data used for auto threshold. Format is positive integer.
Auto Threshold Percent (%) Minimum percent of requests baseline data used for auto threshold. Format is positive integer.
Backend Tier Threshold (msec) Response time threshold in the backend tier in milliseconds. Format is positive integer.
Bad Response Threshold (msec) Time (in milliseconds) that defines the bad requests. A request that spends more time than this threshold to complete is a bad request. Use this attribute with Fair Response Threshold (msec) attribute and Fair Response Zone (msec) attribute. Format is positive integer.
Bad Errors Rate Threshold Value of bad error rate percentage. Format is positive integer.
Baselined Request Count Total number of requests accumulated in the baseline. This counter shows the data since the baseline starts. Format is positive integer.
Client Tier Threshold (msec) Response time threshold in the client tier in milliseconds. Format is positive integer.
Fair Response Threshold (msec) Time (in milliseconds) that defines the fair requests. A request that spends less time than this threshold to complete is a good request. Use this attribute with Fair Response Zone (msec) attribute and Bad Response Threshold (msec) attribute. Format is positive integer.
Fair Response Zone (msec) Time span (in milliseconds) that defines the fair requests. This time span is between the fair response time threshold and the bad time threshold. If the response time of a request falls into this time span, the request is a fair request. Use this attribute with Fair Response Threshold (msec) attribute and Bad Response Threshold (msec) attribute. Format is positive integer.
Fair Errors Rate Threshold Value of fair error rate percentage. Format is positive integer.
Interval (sec) The length (in seconds) of the sampling interval. Format is positive integer.
Node Name Name of the system on which the server is running. Alphanumeric string.
Origin Node Name of the server subnode. Alphanumeric string. Maximum 128 characters.
Request Detail Request detail name. Alphanumeric string.
Request ID The unique identifier of the request that belongs to the application. Format is positive integer.
Request Label A shortened version of Request Name, used to display the request name in the chart view. Alphanumeric string. Maximum4 characters.
Request Name The URL for servlet requests, or the fully qualified class name for EJBs. Alphanumeric string.
Request Type Type of request being run. Valid values are All, Servlet/JSP, EJB, and Portal.
Sample Date and Time The date and time the Tivoli Enterprise Management Agent collected the data. 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:

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 Name of the application server. Alphanumeric string.
