Novell ZENworks Middle Tier


Go to the http://<midtier/oneNet/xtier-stats url, or choose the Middle Tier Server Usage / Statistics link from the http://<midtier/oneNet/nsadmin url.


The following is a list of Middle Tier statistics and what they represent:

  • server-up:  Time (in GMT) since Xtier has been up
  • total-requests:  total number of requests handled by Xtier since it was up
  • bytes-read:  total number of bytes read by Xtier (as payload) from all requests since it was up
  • bytes-written:  total number of bytes written by Xtier from all requests since it was up
  • outstanding requests - number of requests being handled currently (at the same time as this request)
  • sessions:  number of (authenticated) session currently in active
  • max-concurrent-sessions:  the maximum of session that were concurrently active at one point in time since Xtier has been up
  • sessions-created:  total number of sessions (cumulative) that have been created since Xtier has been up
  • authentication-failovers:  number of times Xtier had to switch to an alternate host while attempting to authenticate a user to the backend
  • login-failures:  total number (cumulative) of failed authentication attempts (for whatever reason) since Xtier has been up

If you have a high number of login-failures, this could be due to the fact that your users are not in the default context and therefore a login failure will need to occur before the LDAP lookup finds the correct context for the user and proceeds to successfully login.
