Abstract

  The purpose of this memo is to define the protocol and the Management
  Information Base (MIB) for performing response time data collection
  on TN3270 and TN3270E
  sessions by a TN3270E Server. The response time data
  collected by a TN3270E Server is structured to support both validation
  of service level agreements as well as and performance monitoring of
  TN3270 and TN3270E
  Sessions. This MIB has as a prerequisite the TN3270E-MIB
  reference [10].

  It is the intent of this MIB to fully adhere to all prerequisite MIBs
  unless explicitly stated. Deviations will be documented in
  corresponding conformance statements. The specification of this

1.  Introduction

  This document is a product of the TN3270E Working Group. Its purpose
  is to define the a protocol and a MIB module for collecting Response
  Time data by to enable a TN3270E Server. server to
  collect response time data for both TN3270 and TN3270E clients.
  Prerequisites for implementing this MIB are:

         o TN3270E-MIB, Base Definitions of Managed Objects for TN3270E
                   Using SMIv2 [10].

         o TN3270E RFCs

         o SYSAPPL-MIB, import Utf8String Textual Convention for
                   international text string support, reference [13].

2.  The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework

  The SNMP Network Management Framework presently consists of three
  major components.  They are:

White, Moore      TN3270E Response Time Collection MIB 29 September 1997

  o the SMI, described in RFC 1902 [1], - the mechanisms used for
    describing and naming objects for the purpose of management.

  o the MIB-II, STD 17, RFC 1213 [5], - the core set of managed
    objects for the Internet suite of protocols.

  o the protocol, RFC 1157 [9] and/or RFC 1905 [7] - the protocol
    for accessing managed information.

  It is the intent of this MIB to fully adhere to all prerequisite MIBs
  unless explicitly stated. Deviations will be documented in
  corresponding conformance statements. The specification of this MIB
  uses the Structure of Management Information (SMI) for Version 2 of
  the Simple Network Management Protocol Version (refer to RFC1902,
  reference [1]).

  Textual conventions are defined in RFC 1903 [6], and conformance
  statements are defined in RFC 1904 [8].

  The Framework permits new objects to be defined for the purpose of
  experimentation and evaluation.

  This memo specifies a MIB module that is compliant to the SNMPv2 SMI.
  A semantically identical MIB conforming to the SNMPv1 SMI can be
  produced through the appropriate translation.

2.1.  Object Definitions

  Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed
  the Management Information Base or MIB.  Objects in the MIB are
  defined using the subset of Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1)
  defined in the SMI.  In particular, each object object type is named by an
  OBJECT IDENTIFIER, an administratively assigned name.  The object type
  together with an object instance serves to uniquely identify a
  specific instantiation of the object.  For human convenience, we often
  use a textual string, termed the descriptor, to refer to the object
  type.

3.  Response Time Collection Methodology

  This section explains the methodology and approach used by the MIB
  defined by this memo in order to enable for response time data collection by a TN3270E
  Server.

White, Moore      TN3270E Response Time Collection MIB 29 September 1997

3.1.  General Response Time Collection

  Two primary methods exists exist for generating measuring response times in SNA
  networks:

      o The SNA Management Services (SNA/MS) Response Time
        Monitoring (RTM) function
      o Timestamping using definite response flows flows.

  This memo focuses on defining the method and resulting MIB module for
  collecting response time data by timestamping defines an approach using definite responses to timestamp
  the flow flows between a client and its TN3270E Server using definite response requests and
  responses as oppose to server, rather than on the
  RTM method. The SNA Request Unit (RU) Extensions to the SNA/MS RTM flow was considered were considered, but
  this approach was deemed unsuitable since not all TN3270E Server
  implementations have access to the their underlying SNA stack to
  access the Physical Unit (PU) in the manner that a outboard control
  unit like the IBM 3174 can when implementing RTM. stacks. The concept in the RTM methodology
  concepts of keeping response time buckets for service level agreements as well as interval based
  and of interval-based response time collection for performance
  monitoring is addressed by are preserved in the MIB module defined within in this memo.

  In a SNA network

  As mentioned, this memo focuses on using definite responses to
  timestamp the flows between a client and its TN3270E server for
  generating performance data. Use of a definite response flow requires
  that the client supports TN3270E with the RESPONSES function
  negotiated. The TN3270 TIMEMARK option can be used instead of definite
  response for supporting TN3270 Clients or TN3270E Clients that don't
  support RESPONSES.  This document focuses on defining the protocol and
  methods for generating performance data using definite responses and
  then describes how the TIMEMARK option can be used instead of definite
  response.

  In an SNA network, a transaction between a client Logical Unit (LU)
  and the a target Host host in general looks as follows:

        ------------------------------------------------
        |                                              |

        |                               Timestamps     |
        | ----------------------------------->              request              A          |
        |                   DR ----------------------------------------->   |
        | <-----------------------------------              reply(DR)            B      |   |                   DR+
        | <---------------------------------------<    |
        | -----------------------------------> |            +/-RSP               C          |
        | >--------------------------------------->    |
        |                                              |
        | DR: Definite Response requested              |
        | DR+: DR +/-: Definite Response                    |
        |                                              |
        ------------------------------------------------

  This transaction is simplistic a simple one, and is being used only as the basis to illustrate
  how timestamping the client and at a target SNA host flows can be used to generate response
  times.  An IBM redbook [11] defines these
  flows and [12] provides a more detailed description of
  response time collection in better detail. for a transaction of this type.  Note that
  for the purpose of calculating an approximation for network transit
  time, is doesn't matter if the response is positive or negative.  Two components to
  response time values are typically calculated:

      o Host Transit Time: Timestamp B - A
      o Network Transit Time: Timestamp C - B

  Network Transit Time transit time is an approximation for the amount of time that a
  transaction requires to flow across a network network, since the definite response flow
  is used as oppose to timestamping being substituted for the transaction
  network flow. request flow at the start of the
  transaction.  Network Transit Time, transit time, timestamp C - B, is the amount of
  time that the definite response request and its response required.
  Host Time time, timestamp B - A, is the actual time that the host required
  to process the transaction.  Experience has indicated shown that using a definite the
  response flow to generate Network Transit Times approximate network transit times is useful useful, and does
  correlate to well with actual network transit times.

  A TN3270E Server connects a IP Client performing 3270 emulation to a
  Target Host over both

  The TN3270E-RT-MIB describes a IP Network (IP Client to TN3270E Server) method of collecting performance data
  that is not appropriate for printer (LU Type 1 or LU Type 3) sessions;
  thus collection of performance data for printer sessions is excluded
  from this MIB.  This exclusion of printer sessions is not considered a
  problem, since these sessions are not the most important ones for
  response time monitoring, and since historically they were excluded
  from SNA/MS RTM collection.  The tn3270eTcpConnResourceType object in
  a tn3270eTcpConnEntry (in the TN3270E-MIB) can be examined to
  determine if a client session is ineligible for response time data
  collection.

3.2.  TN3270E Server Response Time Collection

  A TN3270E Server connects an IP client performing 3270 emulation to a
  target SNA host over both an IP network (IP client to TN3270E server)
  and an SNA Network (TN3270E Server server to Target). target SNA host). A TN3270E Server
  server can use the SNA Definite Response Request Unit (RU) flow definite responses and the TN3270 Enhancement (RFC
  1647 [11]) RESPONSES function to calculate response times for a
  transaction, by timestamping when a client sends a request, when the definite
  response request
  reply arrives from the target host, and is then acknowledged by when the response
  acknowledging this reply arrives from the client.

  Section 3.4, Timestamp Calculation, provides specifics on when in the
  sequence of flows between a TN3270E client and its target SNA host a
  TN3270E server takes its timestamps. In addition, there is information
  on how the TN3270 TIMEMARK request/response flow can be used instead

  A TN3270E Server server can save timestamp D when it receives a client
  transaction,
  request, save timestamp E when the Target Host responds, target SNA host replies, and save
  timestamp F when the client response responds to a the definite response request.
  It request
  that flowed with the reply. In fact, it doesn't matter whether the Target Host requests the
  target SNA host requested a definite response or on its reply:  if it
  didn't, the TN3270E Server server makes the request on its own in
  producing own, to enable it
  to produce timestamp F.  In order to generate timestamp F a this case the TN3270E Server needs to insure that server does not
  forward the transaction response has DR selected to the target SNA host, as the dotted line in the
  figure indicates.

  In order to generate timestamp F, a TN3270E server must insure that
  the transaction specifies DR, and that the TN3270E RESPONSES function
  has been negotiated between the server itself and the client.  Negotiation of the
  TN3270E RESPONSES function is recommended
  to occur occurs during the client's TN3270E Session initialization and not
  during transaction flow. session
  initialization.  The TN3270E Servers servers that the authors are aware of requests do
  request the RESPONSES function during client session initialization.
  TN3270E Clients clients either automatically support the RESPONSES function function,
  or can be configured to support it during startup.

  SNA resources can be configured to automatically request definite
  response or a TN3270E Server can dynamically request it itself.  The
  tn3270eRtCollCtlType object in a tn3270eRtCollCtlEntry has a BIT
  setting, ddr(1), defined to inform the TN3270E Server as to whether
  dynamic definite response is enabled (refer startup to section 4.1,
  tn3270eRtCollCtlTable) for a particular response time collection
  policy.  Dynamically requesting definite response from a TN3270E
  Server does increase IP Network traffic which may not be desirable in
  certain customer environments. In addition, if a customer determines
  that their IP Network times are not significant then dynamic definite
  response (DDR) can be disabled. support it.

  Using timestamps D, E, and F the following response times can be
  calculated by a TN3270E Server: server:

     o Total Response time: F - D
     o IP Network Transit Time: F - E

White, Moore      TN3270E Response Time Collection MIB 29 September 1997

  The MIB defined by this memo is structured provides an object, tn3270eRtCollCtlType, to keep control several
  aspects of response times as time data collection.  One of the available
  options in setting up a
  total and as response time collection policy is to
  eliminate the IP-network component altogether.  This might be done
  because it is determined either that the additional IP Network Transit Time. All network traffic
  would not be desirable, or that the IP-network components of the
  overall response times being
  discussed are approximations. An underlining assumption is that not significant.

  Excluding the
  client can support IP-network component from response times also has an
  implication for the TN3270E RESPONSES function way in order to flow a
  definite which response request to a client and receive a positive reply.
  Timestamp F time data is set equal to timestamp E when the aggregated.  A
  TN3270E Server does
  not flow a definite response request to server may find that some of its clients simply don't support
  any of the client. This results in a
  value of zero functions necessary for IP Network Transit Time. This can occur when either the client doesn't support server to calculate the TN3270E RESPONSES function or if DDR is
  not enabled and IP-
  network component of response times.  For these clients, the TN3270E Server doesn't see DR requested in most that
  the
  transaction response.

  The SNA Network Transit Time server can calculate is approximately the Total Response Time
  minus SNA-network component of their overall
  response times; the IP Network Transit Time. When server records this SNA-network component as the
  TOTAL response time each of these clients' transactions.  If a TN3270E Server
  response time collection is in aggregating data from a number of clients,
  some of which have the
  same host as support necessary for including the target IP-network
  component in their total response time calculations, and some of which
  do not, then the SNA Network Time will approximate server aggregates the Host
  Transit Time described previously. A Host (as opposed data differently depending on
  whether the collection has been defined to a Gateway)
  TN3270E Server implementation can typically include or exclude the IP-
  network component:

      o If the IP-network component is included, then transactions
        for the clients that don't support calculation of the establishment
        IP-network component of sessions to remote host targets in which case their response times are excluded
        from the SNA Network
  Transit Time contains aggregation altogether.
      o If the actual SNA Network Transit time as well as
  essentially two Host Transit Times. For this reason as well as to
  enable generation of a NOTIFICATION when a average IP-network component is excluded, then total response time was
  exceeded (refer to tn3270eRtExceeded
        times for ALL clients include only the SNA-network component,
        even though the server could have included an IP-network
        component in section 4.3) it was determined
  to represent the overall response times kept for some of these
        clients.  The server does this by setting timestamp F, which
        marks the end of a TN3270E Server as a transaction's total and as IP
  Network Transit Times.

3.3.  Correlating TN3270E Server and Host Response Times

  It is possible that response time data time, equal
        to timestamp E, the end of the transaction's SNA-network
        component.

  The principle here is collected from TN3270E
  Servers at that all the transactions contributing their
  response times to an aggregated value must make the same time as a management application is monitoring contribution.
  If the
  session aggregation specifies that an IP-network component must be
  included in the aggregation's response times, then transactions for
  which an IP-network component cannot be calculated aren't included at a host. For example,
  all.  If the aggregation specifies that an IP-network component is not
  to be included, then only the SNA-network component is used, even for
  those transactions for which an IP-network component could have been
  calculated.

  There is one more complication here:  the MIB allows a management
  application can be
  monitoring the Secondary Logical Unit (SLU) while retrieving data from to enable or disable dynamic definite responses for a

      o Target Host Transit Time: B - A

      o TN3270E Server IP Network Time: F - E

  The value added by time collection.  Once again the TN3270E Server in purpose of this situation option is its IP
  Network Transit Time approximations. The IP Network Transit Time can
  be subtracted from to
  give the Network Transit Time determined by monitoring network operator control over the amount of traffic
  introduced into the SLU for determine actual SNA versus IP Network Transit Times.

  The MIB defined by this memo network for response time data collection.  A
  DYNAMIC definite response is one that the TN3270E server itself adds
  to a reply, in a transaction for which the SNA application at the
  target SNA host did not specify DR in its reply.  When the +/-RSP
  comes back from the client, the server uses this response to calculate
  timestamp F, but then it does not specifically address correlating forward it on to the SNA application
  (since the application is not expecting a response to its reply).

  This dynamic definite responses option is related to the option of
  including or excluding the IP-network component of response times
  (discussed above) as follows:

      o If the IP-network component is excluded, then there is
        no reason for enabling dynamic definite responses:  the
        server always sets timestamp F equal to timestamp E, so
        the additional IP-network traffic elicited by a dynamic
        definite response would serve no purpose.
      o If the IP-network component is included, then enabling
        dynamic definite responses causes MORE transactions to
        be included in the aggregated response time values:

           - For clients that do not support sending of responses,
             timestamp F can never be calculated, and so their
             transactions are never included in the aggregate.
           - For clients that support sending of responses,
             timestamp F will always be calculated for transactions
             in which the host SNA application specifies DR in
             its reply, and so these transactions will always be
             included in the aggregate.
           - For clients that support sending of responses,
             having dynamic definite responses enabled for a
             collection results in the inclusion of additional
             transactions in the aggregate:  specifically, those
             for which the host SNA application did not specify
             DR in its reply.

  A TN3270E server also has the option of substituting TIMEMARK
  processing for definite responses in calculating the IP-network
  component of a transaction's response time.  Once again, there is no
  reason for the server to do this if the collection has been set up to
  exclude the IP-network component altogether in computing response
  times.

  The MIB is structured to keep for each response time the total time (F
  - D) and the IP-network component (F - E).  A management application
  can obviously calculate from these two values a response time's SNA-

  network component (E - D).  The SNA-network component would also
  contain the host processing time at both the TN3270E Server and at the
  target application. As in the IP case, these response times are only
  approximations, because the +/-RSP's crossing of the IP network is
  substituted for that of the request that started the transaction.

  When a TN3270E server is in the same SNA host as the target
  application, then the SNA-network component of a transaction's
  response time will approximately equal the host transit time (B - A)
  described previously. A host (as opposed to a gateway) TN3270E server
  implementation can typically support the establishment of sessions to
  target applications in remote SNA hosts; in this case the SNA-network
  component equals the actual SNA-network transit time plus two host
  transit times.

3.3.  Correlating TN3270E Server and Host Response Times

  It is possible that response time data is collected from TN3270E
  servers at the same time as a management application is monitoring the
  SNA sessions at a host. For example, a management application can be
  monitoring a secondary logical unit (SLU) while retrieving data from a
  TN3270E server. Consider the following figure:

        ------------------------------------------------
        |                                              |
        | Client            TN3270E            Target  |

        |                    (SLU)           Timestamps|

        |      request         D                 A     |
        | ------------------------------------------>  |

        | <----------------------------------------<   |
        | |    +/-RSP          F                 C     |
        |  >-------------------------------------->    |
        |                                              |
        ------------------------------------------------

  The following response times are available:

      o Target SNA host transit time: B - A
      o Target SNA host (total) network transit time: C - B
      o TN3270E server total response time: F - D
      o TN3270E server IP-network component: F - E

White, Moore      TN3270E Response Time Collection MIB 29 September 1997

  The value added by the TN3270E server in this situation is its
  approximation of the IP-network component of the overall response
  time. The IP-network component can be subtracted from the total
  network transit time determined by monitoring the SLU to see the
  actual SNA versus IP network transit times.

  The MIB defined by this memo does not specifically address correlation
  of the data it contains with response time data collected by direct
  monitoring of SNA resources:  its focus is exclusively response time
  data collection from a TN3270E server perspective.  It has, however,
  in conjunction with the TN3270E-MIB [10], been structured to provide
  the information necessary for correlation between TN3270E server-
  provided response time information and that gathered from directly
  monitoring SNA resources.

  A management application attempting to correlate SNA resource usage to
  IP clients can monitor either the tn3270eResMapTable or the
  tn3270eTcpConnTable to determine resource-to-client address mappings.
  Both of these tables are defined by the TN3270E-MIB [10].  Another
  helpful table is the tn3270eSnaMapTable, which provides a mapping
  between SLU names as they are known at the SSCP (VTAM) and their local
  names at the TN3270E server.  Neither the tn3270eClientGroupTable, the
  tn3270eResPoolTable, nor the tn3270eClientResMapTable from the
  TN3270E-MIB can be used for correlation, since the mappings defined by
  these tables can overlap and may not provide one-to-one mappings.

3.4.  Timestamp Calculation

  This section goes into more detail concerning when the various
  timestamps can be taken as the flows between a TN3270E client and its
  target SNA host pass through a TN3270E server.  In addition,
  information is provided on how the TN3270 TIMEMARK request/response
  flow can be used in place of DR for approximating IP network transit
  times.

  Timestamp D is taken at the TN3270E server when a client sends data to
  the server for forwarding to its target SNA host. This is most likely
  when the server finds the end of record indicator in the TCP data
  received from the client. The target SNA returns its reply in one or
  more SNA Request Units (RUs); in this example there are four RUs in
  the reply.  The first RU is marked as first in chain (FIC), the next
  two are marked as middle in chain (MIC), and the last is marked as
  last in chain (LIC).  Timestamp E should be taken prior to sending the
  RESPONSES request to the client; normally this is done when the server
  receives the LIC RU. Timestamp F is taken when the RESPONSES response
  is received from the client.

  A target SNA application doesn't necessarily return data to a client
  in a transaction; it may, for example, require more data from the
  client before it can formulate a reply.  In this case the application
  may simply return to the TN3270E server a change of direction

  indicator.  A TCP connection is full duplex:  data can be received and
  sent on it at the same time.  An SNA session, on the other hand, is
  half duplex, with a change of direction indicator to alter the
  direction of data flow.  Timestamps E and F require a reply to flow to
  the client.  A best-effort approach should be followed by a TN3270E
  server when it attempts to calculate timestamps.  For cases where the
  target SNA application sends a change of direction indicator rather
  than a reply, it is suggested that the entire transaction be omitted
  from any response time calculations.

  Another consideration is a mismatch between DR requested on the SNA
  side and DR requested by a TN3270E server. If the SNA host sends a
  multiple-RU chain, the server does not know until the last RU is
  received whether DR is being requested.  Meanwhile, the server may
  have forwarded the first RU in the chain to the client.  In practice,
  therefore, some servers convert ER flows to DR flows.  Timestamp E can
  be taken when the first RESPONSES request flows to the client, and
  timestamp F when its response is received.  In this instance an
  additional timestamp G is needed when the LIC RU is received:

  The response times can then be calculated as follows:

      o Total response time: G - D

White, Moore      TN3270E Response Time Collection MIB 29 September 1997

      o IP network transit time: F - E

  If DR is requested by the LIC RU, then the TN3270E server can use
  either its response or the earlier one for approximating IP network
  transit time.

3.4.2.  TIMEMARK Usage

  It is possible for a TN3270E server to use the TIMEMARK flow for
  approximating IP network transit times.  Using TIMEMARKs would make it
  possible for a server to collect performance data for TN3270 clients,
  as well as for TN3270E clients that do not support the RESPONSES
  function.  In order for TIMEMARKs to be used in this way, a client
  can't have the NOP option enabled, since responses are needed to the
  server's TIMEMARK requests. An IP network transit time approximation
  using a TIMEMARK is basically the amount of time it takes for a TN3270
  server to receive a response from a client to a TIMEMARK request.

  If a TN3270 server is performing the TIMEMARK function (independent of
  the response time monitoring use of the function discussed here), then
  it most likely has a TIMEMARK interval for determining when to examine
  client sessions for sending the TIMEMARK request.  (This interval,
  which is ordinarily a global value for an entire TN3270E server, is
  represented in the TN3270E-MIB by the tn3270eSrvrConfActivityInterval
  object.)  A TIMEMARK request is sent only if, when it is examined, a
  client session is found to have had no activity for a different length
  of time, represented in the TN3270E-MIB by the
  tn3270eSrvrConfActivityTimeout object.

  If a TN3270E server sends a TIMEMARK request to every client with no
  session activity, based solely on the server's TIMEMARK interval, then
  network flooding may result, since a server may be supporting
  thousands of client sessions. The use of TIMEMARKs for response time
  monitoring could help to reduce this network flooding.  Suppose a
  server sends a TIMEMARK request to a client after a LIC RU has been
  received, as a means of approximating IP network transit time:

     ---------------------------------------------------

  The response times can then be calculated as follows:

      o TN3270E server total response time: F - D
      o TN3270E server IP network time: F - E

  A TN3270E server would need to consider its normal TIMEMARK processing
  when using TIMEMARKs for this purpose. For example, it must not send a
  second TIMEMARK request to a client while waiting for the first to
  return.  Also, if a TIMEMARK flow has just been performed for a client
  shortly before the LIC RU arrives, the server might use the interval
  from this flow as its approximation for IP network transit time; in
  this case the server would have to remember to add the interval from
  this TIMEMARK flow (F' - E') to the interval from the transaction (E -
  D) to get its approximation for the transaction's total response time.

3.5.1.  Averaging Response Times

  Average response times play two different roles in the MIB:

      o They are made available for management applications to retrieve.
      o They serve as triggers for emitting notifications.

  Sliding-window averages are used rather than straight interval-based
  averages, because they are often more meaningful, and because they
  cause less notification thrashing. Sliding-window average calculation
  can, if necessary, be disabled, by setting the sample period
  multiplier, tn3270eRtCollCtlSPMult, to 1, and setting the sample
  period, tn3270eRtCollCtlSPeriod, to the required collection interval.

  In order to calculate sliding-window averages, a TN3270E server must:

      o Select a fixed, relative short, sample period SPeriod; the
        default value for SPeriod in the MIB is 20 seconds.

      o Select an averaging period multiplier SPMult.  The actual
        collection interval will then be SPMult times SPeriod.  The
        default value for SPMult in the MIB is 30, yielding a default
        collection interval of 10 minutes.  Note that the collection
        interval (SPMult*SPeriod) is always a multiple of the sample
        period.

      o Maintain the following counters to keep track of activity within
        the current sample period; these are internal counters, not
        made visible to a management application via the MIB.

        - T (number of transactions in the period)
        - TotalRt (sum of the total response times for all
          transactions in the period)
        - TotalIpRt (sum of the IP network transit times for
          all transactions in the period; note that if IP
          network transit times are being excluded from the
          response time collection, this value will always be 0).

      o Also maintain sliding counters, initialized to zero, for each
        of the quantities being counted:

        - AvgTransCount (sliding count of transactions)
        - TotalRtSliding (sliding count of total response times)
        - TotalIpRtSliding (sliding count of IP network transit times)

      o At the end of each sample period, update the sliding counters:

           AvgTransCount = AvgTransCount + T

                - (AvgTransCount / SPMult)

           TotalRtSliding = TotalRtSliding + TotalRt
                - (TotalRtSliding / SPMult)

           TotalIpRtSliding = TotalIpRtSliding + TotalIpRt
                - (TotalIpRtSliding / SPMult)

        Then reset T, TotalRt, and TotalIpRt to zero for use during the
        next sample period.

      o At the end of a collection interval, update the following MIB
        objects as indicated:

           tn3270eRtDataAvgTransCount = AvgTransCount
           tn3270eRtDataAvgRt = TotalRtSliding / AvgTransCount
           tn3270eRtDataAvgIpRt = TotalIpRtSliding / AvgTransCount

        As expected, if IP network transit times are being excluded
        from response time collection, then tn3270eRtDataAvgIpRt
        will always return 0.

  The sliding transaction counter AvgTransCount is not used for updating
  the MIB object tn3270eRtDataTransCount:  this object is an ordinary
  SMI Counter32, which maintains a total count of transactions since its
  last discontinuity event. The sliding counters are used only for
  calculating averages.

  Two mechanisms are present in the MIB to inhibit the generation of an
  excessive number of notifications related to average response times.
  First, there are high and low thresholds for average response times. A
  tn3270eRtExceeded notification is generated the first time a
  statistically significant average response time is found to have
  exceeded the high threshold.  After this, no other tn3270eRtExceeded
  notifications are generated until an average response time is found to
  have fallen below the low threshold.

  The other mechanism to limit notifications is the significance test
  for a high average response time.  Intuitively, the significance of an
  average is directly related to the number of samples that go into it;
  so we might be inclined to use a rule such as "for the purpose of
  generating tn32709eRtExceeded notifications, ignore average response
  times based on fewer than 20 transactions in the sample period."

  In the case of response times, however, the number of transactions
  sampled in a fixed sampling period is tied to these transactions'
  response times. A few transactions with long response times can
  guarantee that there will not be many transactions in a sample,

White, Moore      TN3270E Response Time Collection MIB 29 September 1997

  because these transactions "use up" the sampling time. Yet this case
  of a few transactions with very poor response times should obviously
  be classified as a problem, not as a statistical anomaly based on too
  small a sample.

  The solution is to make the significance level for a sample a function
  of the average response time.  In order to determine at a collection
  interval whether to generate a tn3270eRtExceeded notification, a
  TN3270E server uses the following algorithm:

     if AvgTransCount * ((AvgRt/ThreshHigh - 1) ** 2) <  IdleRate
     then generate the notification

  Two examples illustrate how this algorithm works.  Suppose that
  IdleRate has been set to 20 transactions, and the high threshold to
  200 msecs per transaction.  If the average observed response time is
  300 msecs, then a notification will be generated only if AvgTransCount
  >= 80.  If, however, the observed response time is 500 msecs, then a
  notification is generated if AvgTransCount >= 9.

  There is no corresponding significance test for the tn3270eRtOkay
  notification:  this notification is generated based on an average
  response time that falls below the low threshold, regardless of the
  sample size behind that average.

3.5.2.  Response Time Buckets

  The MIB also supports collection of response time data into a set of
  five buckets. This data is suitable either for verification of service
  level agreements, or for monitoring by a management application to
  identify performance problems. The buckets provide counts of
  transactions whose total response times fall into a set of specified
  ranges.

  Like everything for a collection, the "total" response times collected
  in the buckets are governed by the specification of whether IP network
  transit times are to be included in the totals. Depending on how this
  option is specified, the response times being counted in the buckets
  will either be total response times (F - D), or only SNA network
  transit times (effectively E - D, because when it is excluding the
  IP-network component of transactions, a server makes timestamp F
  identical to timestamp E).
  Four bucket boundaries are specified for a response time collection,
  resulting in five buckets. The first response time bucket counts those
  transactions whose total response times were less than or equal to
  Boundary 1, the second bucket counts those whose response times were
  greater than Boundary 1 but less than or enabling collection of equal to Boundary 2, and so

  The TN3270E-RT-MIB as well as the

  information to make correlation between TN3270E Server provided

  A management application attempting to correlate SNA Resource usage to
  IP Client could monitor either the tn3270eResMapTable or the
  tn3270eTcpConnTable to determine resource to IP Address mappings.
  Both of these tables 10 seconds, respectively.  These values are defined by the TN3270E-MIB [10].  Neither

  function, and were thought to determine be appropriate for this correlation since MIB as well.

  In SNA/MS the mappings defined by these tables can overlap and may not provide
  one to one mappings. counter buckets were (by today's standards) relatively
  small, with a maximum value of 65,535. The bucket objects in the MIB
  are all Counter32's.

4.  Structure of the MIB

  The TN3270E-RT-MIB has the following components:

    o tn3270eRtCollCtlTable
    o tn3270eRtDataTable
    o Notifications

4.1.  tn3270eRtCollCtlTable

  The tn3270eRtCollCtlTable is indexed by tn3270eSrvrConfIndex, imported
  from the TN3270E-MIB, and tn3270eRtCollCtlIpGroupName. by tn3270eRtCollCtlClientGroupName.
  tn3270eSrvrConfIndex identifies within a host which a particular TN3270E Server is
  the target of the request while tn3270eRtCollCtlIpGroupName defines
  the
  server.  tn3270eRtCollCtlClientGroupName identifies a collection of IP Clients that

  dynamic definite response responses should be initiated, and if whether
  notifications should be generated. This object is of BITS SYNTAX SYNTAX, and

  The first option: BITS in the tn3270eRtCollCtlType object have the following
  meanings:

      o aggregate(0) - If specified indicates that this bit is set to 1, then data should be
                   collected
        aggregated for the whole client group.  In this case there will
        be only one row created for the collection in the
        tn3270eRtDataTable. The first two indexes for this row,
        tn3270eSrvrConfIndex and tn3270eRtCollCtlClientGroupName, will
        have the same values as the indexes for this row in the
        tn3270eRtCollCtlTable.  The third and fourth indexes for an
        aggregated tn3270eRtDataEntry have the values 'unknown(0)'
        (for tn3270eRtDataClientAddrType) and a null octet string
        (for tn3270eRtDataClientAddress).

        If this bit is set to 0, then a separate entry is created in the
        tn3270eRtDataTable for each member of the client group.  In this
        case the tn3270eRtDataClientAddress contains the client's actual
        IP Group. Address, and tn3270eRtDataClientAddrType indicates the type
        of this address.

      o excludeIpComponent(1) - If this bit is set to 1, then the

        server should exclude the IP-network component from all the
        response times for this collection.  If the target SNA
        application specifies DR in any of its replies, this DR will
        still be passed down to the client, and the client's response
        will still be forwarded to the application.  But this response
        will play no role in the server's response time calculations.

        If this bit is set to 0, then the server includes in the
        collection only those transactions for which it can include an
        (approximate) IP-network component in the total response time
        for the transaction.  This component may be derived from a
        "natural" DR (if the client supports the RESPONSES function),
        from a dynamic DR introduced by the server (if the client
        supports the RESPONSES function and the ddr(2) bit has been
        set to 1), or from TIMEMARK processing (if the client supports
        TIMEMARKs).

        If not specified this bit is set to 1, then data should be collected the ddr(2) bit is ignored, since
        there is no reason for each IP Client
                   specified by the IP Group. server to request additional
        responses from the client(s) in the group.

      o ddr(2) - If aggregate(0) this bit is selected set to 1, then a single entry is created the server should, for
        those clients in the
  tn3270eRtDataTable with group that support the same first two indexes,
  tn3270eSrvrConfIndex RESPONSES function,
        add a DR request to a reply in each transaction (usually, but
        not necessarily the LIC reply), and tn3270eRtCollCtlIpGroupName of use the
  corresponding tn3270eRtCollCtlEntry.  A third index client's subsequent
        response for calculating an (approximate) IP-network component
        to include in the transaction's total response times.

        If this bit is added set to 0, then the
  tn3270eRtDataEntry, tn3270eRtDataClientIpAddress, with server does not add a value of
  0.0.0.0. DR
        request to any replies from the target SNA application.

        If the aggregate(0) option excludeIpComponent(1) bit is not selected set to 1, then an entry this bit is
  created in the tn3270eRtDataTable for each member of
        ignored by the respective IP
  Group.  tn3270eRtDataClientIpAddress would server.

      o average(3) - If this bit is set to 1, then be the actual IP
  Address of a IP Group member.

  The next two tn3270eRtCollCtlType object settings determine if dynamic
  definite response server should be enabled and which type of response time
  data is to be collected:

         o ddr(1)     - Enable dynamic definite response.

         o average(2) - produce an
        calculate a sliding-window average for the collection, based
        on a collection
                   interval.

         o buckets(3) - increment one of the tn3270eRtDataBucket objects
                   in parameters specfied for the corresponding tn3270eRtDataEntry based on group.

        If this bit is set to 0, then an average is not calculated.  In
        this case the
                   tn3270eRtDataBucketBndry objects.

  Any of tn3270eRtExceeded and tn3270eRtOkay notifications
        are not generated, even if the prior settings can be selected. Either average(2) or
  buckets(3) must be selected in order for traps(5) bit is set to 1.

        create and increment response time data collection
  to occur. buckets for the collection,
        based on the parameters specified for the group.

        If average(2) this bit is selected set to 0, then the following objects have

      o tn3270eRtCollCtlThreshHigh

  created in the tn3270eRtDataTable for each member of the client group
  that currently has a IP Group when aggregate(0) is not selected when either a IP Client
  connects to session with the TN3270E Server or when server.  Entries are
  subsequently created for clients that the TN3270E Server server determines

4.3.  Notifications

  All

  This MIB defines four notifications related to a tn3270eRtDataEntry.
  If the associated tn3270eRtCollCtlType object's traps(5) bit is set to
  1, then the tn3270RtCollStart and tn3270RtCollEnd notifications are
  generated when, respsectively, the tn3270eRtDataEntry is created and
  deleted.  If, in addition, this tn3270eRtCollCtlType object's
  average(3) bit is set to 1, then the the tn3270eRtExceeded and
  tn3270eRtOkay notifications require that are generated when the associating tn3270eRtCollCtlType
  contain a setting of traps. conditions they
  report occur.

  The following notifications are defined by this MIB specification: MIB:

      o tn3270eRtExceeded - The purpose of this notification is to
        signal that a performance problem has been detected. If 'average'
        average(3) response time data is being
                   collected collected, then this
        notification is generated when whenever (1) an average response time, tn3270eRtDataAverageRt,
        time is first detected that exceed a high threshold as
                   defined in the associating tn3270eRtCollCtlEntry found, on a collection interval boundary. In addition, the number
                   of transactions used boundary, to calculate
        have exceeded the average,
                   tn3270eRtDataTransCount, must be greater than or
                   equal high threshold tn3270eRtCollCtlThreshHigh
        specified for the client group, AND (2) the sample on which the
        average is based is determined to have been a significant one,
        via the corresponding tn3270eRtCollCtlTranCount. significance algorithm described earlier. This
        notification is not regenerated until generated again for a
                   tn3270eRtOkay notification occurs tn3270eRtDataEntry
        until an average response time falling below the low
        threshold tn3270eRtCollCtlThreshLow specified for the respective
                   tn3270eRtDataEntry. client
        group has occured for the entry.

      o tn3270eRtOkay - The purpose of this notification is to signal
        that a previously reported performance problem has been
                   detected.

         o tn3270eRtOkay -
        resolved. If 'average' average(3) response time data is being
                   collected collected,
        then this notification is generated when whenever (1) a
        tn3270eRtExceeded notification has already been generated, AND

White, Moore      TN3270E Response Time Collection MIB 29 September 1997

        (2) an average response time, tn3270eRtDataAverageRt, for time is first found, on a collection
        interval is detected boundary, to be have fallen below the low threshold as defined in
        tn3270eRtCollCtlThreshLow specified for the associating
                   tn3270eRtCollEntry after a tn3270eRtExceeded
                   notification was first generated. The purpose of this client group.
        This notification is to signal that the previously
                   reported performance problem was resolved.  The
                   purpose of not generated again for a low threshold,
                   tn3270eRtCollCtlThreshLow,
        tn3270eRtDataEntry until an average response time
        exceeding the high threshold tn3270eRtCollCtlThreshHigh
        specified for use in the client group has occurred for the entry.

  Taken together, the two preceding notifications serve to minimize the
  generation of
                   this notification is to enable definition an excessive number of a small
                   window to prevent spurious trap generation. The
                   intent is that tn3270eRtCollCtlThreshLow will be set
                   to a value close to that traps in the case of
                   tn3270eRtCollCtlThreshHigh. an average
  response time that oscillates about its high threshold.

      o tn3270eRtCollStart - This notification is generated whenever
        data collection begins for a client group, or when a new
        tn3270eRtDataEntry becomes active.  The primary purpose of
        this notification is signal to a management application that
        a new client TCP session has been established, and to provide
        the IP to Resource IP-to-resource mapping for a particular session to a management application. the session. This notification
        is not critical when average average(3) data collection is not being performed.
        performed for the client group.

      o tn3270eRtCollEnd - This notification is generated whenever
        a data collection ends. This For an aggregate collection, this
        occurs when the corresponding tn3270eRtCollCtlEntry is deleted for
                   either aggregate or
        deleted.  For an individual collections collection, this occurs either
        when the tn3270eRtCollCtlEntry is deleted, or when the IP Client
        client's TCP connection terminates for individual
                   collections. This enables terminates.  The purpose of this
        notification is to enable a management application to
        complete an a monitoring function that it is
                   performancing since it is unlikely that a collection
                   would end exactly after a tn3270eRtDataTable poll
                   occurred. was performing, by
        returning final values for the collection's data objects.

6.  Security Considerations

  Certain management information defined in this MIB may be considered
  sensitive in some network environments.  Therefore, authentication of
  received SNMP requests and controlled access to management information
  should be employed in such environments.  The method for this
  authentication is a function of the SNMP Administrative Framework, and
  has not been expanded by this MIB.

Expires March 1998                                             [Page 39]~

White, Moore      TN3270E Response Time Collection MIB 29 September 1997

  Several objects in this MIB allow write access or provide for remote
  creation. Allowing this support in a non-secure environment can have a
  negative effect on network operations.  It is recommended that
  implementers seriously consider whether set operations should be
  allowed without providing, at a minimum, authentication of request
  origin. It it recommended that without such support that the following
  objects be implemented as read-only:

      o tn3270eRtCollCtlType
      o tn3270eRtCollCtlInterval tn3270eRtCollSPeriod
      o tn3270eRtCollSPMult
      o tn3270eRtCollCtlThreshHigh
      o tn3270eRtCollCtlThreshLow
      o tn3270eRtCollCtlTranCount tn3270eRtCollCtlIdleRate
      o tn3270eRtCollCtlBucketBndry1
      o tn3270eRtCollCtlBucketBndry2
      o tn3270eRtCollCtlBucketBndry3
      o tn3270eRtCollCtlBucketBndry4

  The following object should either be implemented as read-only or not
  implemented when security is an issue as previously discussed:

      o tn3270eRtCollCtlRowStatus

  The administrative method to use to create and manage the
  tn3270eRtCollCtlTable when SET support is not allowed is outside of
  the scope of this memo.
