    Hi,

     

    please consult the CA APM for Siteminder documentation:

     

    For Web Agents:

    Operations

    These metrics are provided for each resource listed in the table in this section:

    • Average Response Time (ms)—Average time in milliseconds spent on a particular operation by the web agent.
    • Errors Per Interval—Number of errors per interval for a particular operation in a web agent.
    • Failures Per Interval—Number of failures per interval for a particular operation in a web agent.
    • Responses Per Interval—Number of responses per interval by a web agent for a particular operation.

    Metric Notes

    • SiteMinder Manager|Web Agents|<WebAgent Name>|Operations|Authorize: Authorize describes counters relating to user authorization.
    • SiteMinder Manager|Web Agents|<WebAgent Name>|Operations|IsProtected: IsProtected describes counters relating to an agent calling on the policy server to determine if a resource is protected or not. Failures Per Interval metric is not available for IsProtected.
    • SiteMinder Manager|Web Agents|<WebAgent Name>|Operations|Login: Login describes counters relating to user authentication.
    • SiteMinder Manager|Web Agents|<WebAgent Name>|Operations|Validation: Validation describes counters relating to user session validation (single signon).

     

    For Policy Servers:

    Operations

    These metrics are provided for each resource listed in the table in this section:

    •   Average Response Time (ms)—Average time in milliseconds taken by Policy Server to process a single operation call. The operation may be related to Login, Logout, Validate, IsProtected, or Authorize.
    • Errors Per Interval—Number of failures occurred per interval when Policy Server is processing an operation call.
    • Responses Per Interval—Number of successes occurred per interval when Policy Server is processing an operation call.

    Metric Notes

    • SiteMinder|Policy Server|<PSHost>|Operations|Authorize: Metrics regarding the response time and errors related to authorize operations.
    • SiteMinder|Policy Server|<PSHost>|Operations|IsProtected: Metrics regarding the response time and errors encountered when checking to see if a resource is protected.
    • SiteMinder|Policy Server|<PSHost>|Operations|Login: Metrics regarding the response time and errors encountered when users attempt to log in to the system.
    • SiteMinder|Policy Server|<PSHost>|Operations|Logout: Metrics regarding the response time and errors encountered when users attempt to log out of the system.
    • SiteMinder|Policy Server|<PSHost>|Operations|Validate: Metrics regarding the response time and errors encountered when users are validated on the system.

     

    For more info please ask in the CA Security forum.
