IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version 188.8.131.52
Attributes for ITCAM Agent for WebSphere Applications
ITCAM Agent for WebSphere Applications gathers information about running WAS processe using data created from ITCAM for WebSphere data collectors. The ITCAM agent and stores this information in elements called attributes. For example, the Receive Count attribute in the JMS Summary attribute group counts the number of messages your applications have retrieved from JMS messages queues.
The IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager Agent for WebSphere Applications attributes are organized into groups of related items. These attribute groups comprise the attribute tables for this agent. For example, the Garbage Collection Analysis attribute group provides information about the frequency with which the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) invokes its garbage collector.
Attributes and workspaces
Within the Tivoli Enterprise Portal workspaces, these attributes get displayed in, and correspond to, the columns in the reports and the items in the graphic displays for charts and graphs. You can use the collected data to analyze and monitor the performance of your WebSphere application servers and the applications running within them. For an overview of the correlations between the predefined workspaces and the attribute groups, see Attribute Groups Used by the Predefined Workspaces.
Attributes and situations
Various attributes are referenced by the product's predefined situations. You can also use the IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager Agent for WebSphere Applications attributes to create your own situations to monitor the performance of your WebSphere application servers and their applications. These situations can monitor your WAS resources or correlate multiple conditions to alert you to problems that may have occurred when attribute values exceed thresholds that you define.
- Attribute groups used by the predefined workspaces
A workspace contains graphical data or report columns that correspond directly to particular attributes in an attribute group. The following table shows the correlations between the predefined workspaces and the attribute groups. The workspaces, primary and secondary, are listed alphabetically, not in the order in which they appear in the Navigator.
